    Ok I haven't had a K5 problem post in a long time but in the past few weeks I randomly start the k5 and I've started noticing it seemingly randomly doesn't have power. Like I turn the key to on and in the interior light comes on but when I turn to start the light goes out and nothing happens. I try it a few times then it just starts no problem like nothing happened. anyone have an idea? I will be moving the battery to interior so will get new grounds and positive wire going.
