    Possible problem with the main relay. Need to check to see if it is failing. It will be intermittant at first and then happen more and more often till the vehicle won't crank at all.

    You never said you have an overheating issue. You said everything was fine even with the A/C running. Do you have an overheating issue?

    Check antifreeze level and top off if needed. Also, get the main relay tested.
