Also int on is abs/traction control lights

Symptons
Car was dead no power, jump start worked after fidgetting with jumper cables for a while

3 days later same thing, jump didnt work, what would happen is when hook up cables the lights would come on then as soon as turn key everything dead and would have to fiddle with jumper cables for a while.

Then took jumper cables off, was just sitting there and all of a sudden with key in ignition it came back to life and started. Shut it off when to turn it on and same thing as soon as turned key everything went black again.

Ideas?

If the cables are clean and tight, then I'd suspect a bad battery.
13.8V... I really starting to think I have a bad ground somewhere because I was just sitting in the car again with the key in the on position and after about 5 mins it all of a sudden came on and it started fine.

Is your battery under the rear seat ?? If so, there have been problems with the ground cable bolt to the floor pan stud.
