i had this problem turned out to be the black connector of death behind the passenger front head light,.
Give it a good clean and the connectors as they gaver alot of crap down there.

i found the fault by putting a amp meter on the battery terminals while the car is running and gave the connector of death a wiggle and see if the volts goes up.
