I may be way off base here, but I've heard of a fix using an older volt regulator. I believe the volt regger is in the computer on yours, the computer starts to fail=no charge.Heres a link that may be useful.
Sometimes the obvious eludes us so forgive me for saying this, and please don't take offense, but how are your battery terminals? If they need cleaned or tightened or stuff it can do weird stuff to the electrical system.

I had the EXACT same symptoms as your describing. In addition sometimes my wait to start light, check engine light wouldn't turn on for a few seconds during initially turning the key on. It is rare but mine ended up being a bad computer. Mines a 95 and 94s had the same computer. Try car-part.com to find a new computer or oreilys auto parts. I got mine used through car-part.com for under $150 shipped. Oreilys supposedly sells new ecus.
