There could be multiple issues here and it's hard to say without really looking/running numbers - is there power (lights/dash symbols/etc) when you turn the key? Or completely dead?
If completely dead, did you see a random brake light while driving? That could indicate a bad alternator. Does jumping it start her? If so, possible you have a parasitic draw in the system draining the battery.
Ground wires are important to check, also.
Off hand, without much data to work with, mass air flow sensors can cause a no start - try unplugging this and starting. You can also backprobe to test sensor and harness for ground. This may not throw a code right away.
I see "sometime," so if assuming a start at times and others not randomly - recheck ignition switch assembly wires, follow them and see if any are loose. A friend had this issue and found the ignition switch assembly wire coming from the alarm was loose.
No codes and random starting, I'd lean wiring. Maybe retrace your steps - it sounds like you tackled the more indicative issues already.
First does the battery have good charge (12v). Does the wire running into the battery terminals have complete contact with the terminals? Sometimes the wiring into the terminals fray and or slide out away from the terminal housing. It could be a few things but try those first
You have a random electrical short in the system and it is on the acc. side of your ignition system.Systems such as interior lights, glovebox light, brake lights, memory circuits for onboard computer, radio and some aftermarket components. Without me being able to see your car it is very hard to determine the cause. First determine that the battery is dead. Its possible that the battery cables have a bad connection, not at the battery but at the starter sol. or the battery cable ground connection on the engine. Clean these connections to see if you fixed it. If not then after that you will need to remove the poss. battery cable take a volt ohm meter and put the black lead to the poss. post of the battery and the red lead to the cable, set the meter to 10 amps BEFORE you hook it up. Then wate until all systems have timed out when this happens the needle will drop. If not then you have a direct short. If it does drop it should drop to less then 2 amps (that is normal) if it is above that you have a drain on the battery. Before you start this test make sure the key is out of the ign. then remove the interior light fuse that way you can open the doors without resetting the timers. Watch the meter and remove one fuse at a time, if the needle drops then that is the circuit that is giving you the trouble. Find out what that fuse controls and repair as needed. Hope this helps. Let everyone know if it did OK
this doesn't sound good at all. if you couldn't jump start it within a few minutes, you should have stopped right there. maybe you were jumpping the car wrong, from doing so, you may have fried the computer, that rounds your entire engine. try installing a new battery, if any codes were stored in the computer, clear them out. some times just removing the battery cables for a few minutes will do this . sometimes not. try to start the engine. donot jump start, see if will start on its own. if not, seek professional help, keep blaming goodyear until you get results !!!!!!
That is what happens when you have a completely dead battery. Battery could be shot. Or canions. be caused by a bad connection at the terminal due to corrosion or a loosee bolt. It often times means that you have a bad alternator. The alternator is what charges the battery as the engine runs. Please give me a good rating, it means a lot to me. Please let me know if you have any more quest
sounds link alt. starting to go bad. do you need to jump it after the battery dies, or after you wait the 30 min? or when you turn the key after the 30 min does it start right up?
if it starts right up you have to much of a drain on the battery or something you may have plugged in may be draining the battery IE phone charger,radar detector, etc.
if you need to jump it then it is probably the alt. starting to go bad.
