randomly i can go days/weeks before it acts up again,
seems on very hot days is when it has the problem the

Sounds like a battery issue, have it checked out as well as your alternator. A defective cell in the battery would be a good cause.

Battery and altenator was tested I forgot to add that, they are both ok. And I'm not having issues with security thing cause my light is off for security.
