Check the fuel cut off switch on the left side inside the trunk behind the tail light.

It probably just was jarred enough to only make contact sometimes.
Its the first thing I check every time, then I check the fuse. If the fuse is good I then get out my meter and test the cutoff switch to be sure its good.
