It did the same thing. It wouldn't turn over, as if the battery was dead. 10 minutes later, it would start like nothing was wrong.
Under the hood, there is a second positive cable. It goes up to a terminal on the passenger side of the car. mine was so rotted, that it fell apart in the mechanics hands when he touched it. Check that, and see if it looks rusted. It can be replaced or maybe bipassed.....If it isnt that, then maybe its the battery? The posts can be broken inside...?
Everyone has a photographic memory; some just don't have film.
