    I would check all of the electrical connections and fuses.. sometimes they get a little corroded and need to be redone or cleaned. (or jiggled a bit every now and then)

    I had the same problem so to speak. For sure do what Bret said as I found a loose ground, but also I found it went to a switch to power it up that I didn't know what the switch was for it wasn't labeled or anything. Follow your power and see where it goes.
