It sound dumb, but check if both battery posts are OK. Pull on both of them one after the other to make sure they wont budge at all. Cause i had this problem once where the negative post had broken, but inside the battery where the post and the plates that make up the battery's cells become one. But since the post was still sitting in the battery, it touched just enough to give the car juice to start and all, but when i hit a big enough bump, the post jumped up so the car had no more ground, and with no ground to work with, the spark plugs can't make any fire so the engine dies apparently for no reason. So even if it sound weird or dumb, check that out first cause it would be the thing that makes you search the longest. If everything regarding the battery is fine, then i'm guessing a problem with a body ground or grounding strap somewhere. Might either be the grounds regarding the engine that give it the possibility to fire and such, or might be the grounds and/or fuses and connectors that make the car's onboard computer work.

SOURCE: how to find the starter
This is what your starter will look like. It's usually on the passanger side engine. Follow your red battery cable to the relay, then follow it from there until it reaches the starter. Make sure you remove the red cable from your battery before working on it.
