Do you have a lot of crap on your keychain? I had a customers car years ago that would shut off after random bumps etc. we tracked it back to having a lot of junk on the keyring.

cars just dont 'shut off'....im betting the battery cables are not 'fine' or there is another electrical issue related to poorly done wiring, somewhere

d0000000000000d....there have been NUMEROUS reports of battery cables being lose and causing this

theoretically.....taking the battery cable off the battery wont cause it to die....but an intermittent connection does it no good at all

but....it has happened where the ONLY thing that people have changed is tightening the clamp on the terminal to the battery and the issue was resolved
