Why does my 2005 Volvo S60 shut off like this?

Our car is parked engine is running radio is on.Then all of sudden Radio shuts off and I am unable to start my car. I ended up getting a jump. The car battery is only 23 mos old AAA checks the battery it tests fine. What is going on? This has happened several times.

Sounds like a poor battery connection or an alternator problem. Start by cleaning the battery terminals.
