3rd gen engine shut off

Hey everyone, I could use a little input here. So I bought a 98 4Runner automatic v6 with about 250,000 miles on it last year. Over the last few months, Iíve replace the alternator, spark plugs and wires, fuel injectors, fluids.

Recently, Iíll go to switch my key on and everything lights up like normal but then when I go to switch it over, it make me a clicking noise maybe 2 times and then everything shuts off. Radio, lights, everything. I have to unplug the battery for about 5 min and then it will start up just fine. It does this on cold start and a couple times when Iím just idling. I went ahead and replaced the starter but itís still giving me the same issue.

Any one else experience this? I think it might be battery cables or maybe a fuse? There is no check engine light on or anything.

Check the battery terminal connections also a good idea check the condition of the cables ensure the ground is clean and tight. Charge the batt. if you don't have a charge take it to Orelley or Autozone like place they will charge it and check to see if the battery is faulty. Once you get it started check the charging system or the auto parts stores will also do this check for you if you needed it. If you have AAA they will also do these checks for you if you need it.
