    sounds like a loose wire somwhere, but i'm no electrician so you could be opening a can of worms on that one

    Check the fusiable links near the solenoid. Those will go, wreaking all sort of havoc in the electrical system. Such as no-start, no-crank. all the issues you mentioned. Trace out the problem though, there may be a chafed wire causing the root problem
