2005 g6 dies and then nothing

My 2005 G6 has a 3500 v6 and it randomly will die and after it dies I turn the key and nothing happens. If I let it sit overnight and go back and try to crank it, it will then work like nothing ever happened.

Then maybe 2 months later the same thing will happen again. Then a Year later it will happen again. This is such an aggravating issue because I can never get a mechanic to take a look at it when it is dead because it always works by time the mechanic gets to it.

I have checked the wires to the starter and have a new battery. The car has plenty of charge because we try to jump it off and still, turn the key, and nothing happens. NOTHING!

All of the fuses are good, all of the relays are good, the starter is good. It just randomly dies while driving and then will do NOTHING until some time passes by.

Please help me!!!! I do not trust this car!

Sounds like maybe the Crankshaft Position Sensor could be defective. Try Googling Crankshaft Pos. Sensor troubleshooting and see if any of those symtoms matches yours.
