You got it ! its the switch or a loose wire ....also check all your grounds ,especialy if you run a side terminal batery.....my negative cable came loose and caused me fits for about a minute.

Also a wire could be bare and touching ground like where it passes through firewall. I had this problem once and car would quit when I slammed on brakes. Or hit someone (oops).

Check the battery cables too. Had a new one fall completely out of the lug while on the battery post. Poor crimping by the battery guy.

Besides your toggle on/off switch, check your master kill switch. Those fail constantly.
