The clicking IAC is an effect not a cause of that problem.

Honestly Ghost, I wish I could say for sure, but this is a problem that really has to be diagnosed only by working on the vehicle. It could be something simple, or something profound. My first advice is always to check the battery connections- specifically the neg terminal. I'd go so far as to check the alternator hot, and the starter hot. I know you are a mother, and likely can't do that without a mechanic's assistance. I'd surely hope that the mechanic who worked on the car previously would've checked that.

Other locations that deserve inspection are the bulkhead connector, and the fuse boxes.

Intermittent electrical problems are nightmares to trace down. I'm sorry you have one. It can happen to any car. I have an 05 as well, 85k miles and no problems aside of regular maintenance.
