the issue you have is most likely a due to melting / hot spot development at the fuse box. this is very common on this model.
other possible causes would be an issue with the battery cable/connections, or a faulty battery unit (the plastic box that sits on top of the battery). Most likely it is the fuse panel issue, however.

yes this sounds like the issue you had.
it can be intermittent, all depends on the nature of the damage that occured, temperature flucuations day to day or while driving, etc.
As I said, this is most likely your cuase, and would not have suggested it if it was not possible for it to occur intermittently
it is a common problem due to the design of this car - things just heat up in that area due to poor cooling. There is no easy way to check this, the fuse box and battery cable need to be pulled and checked.
as I mentioned there are other possible causes as well, but this is the most likely. the only other possible cause would be an issue with the car access control unit but it does not sound likely based on your symptoms.
