Intermittant electrical problem

My 2002 Saab 9-3 (101K on clock) cut out on me recently - just a jolt and all the power died. Got taken to garage and they replaced coil pack and crank shaft sensor which seemed to resolve it but a few days later it happened again. All ok one minute, then a jolt and all power gone. Called AA and waited an hour and then she fired up again.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Garage said engine all fine and think it's some sort of electrical problem?!

I would really appreciate any advice or help.

Check ground/positive connections to starter, grounds to block and then ignition switch.

I'd pull off the battery terminals and clean them, rough up a little with a wire brush, even if they look clean on the outside. Then reinstall and snug up real well.
