Hi there. Intermittent power loss could be caused by a loose wire or the computer losing power. First, try checking the battery and alternator connections. Make sure that all of the cables are tight and free from any corrosion. Then, check the computer's ground and make sure that the ground is clean and tight. If you need further assistance troubleshooting this issue, then seek out a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, to assist you with your power problem.
