I don't really know what the problem is but considering what you are saying I think possibly it is an electrical problem. From what I've been told in the past, when a vehicle has issues like this only once it is warm there is a short in something. Just a thought. Good luck with that.

sounds like your starter solenoid is wearing out. if it wont start when its hot but when its cold you could use a new starter.

I wander if maybe the ignition module has got problems... this is a similar problem Mitsu Starions face and had a buncha people tell me the ignition module often is the cause. Ofcourse that is on a totally different make and model so who knows.

so i think i found my problem... i had remote start put on about a yr ago and bak in may i had it taken off for my alarm system well the gm bypass thing that lies to the factorysecurity part of the truck was left on and i noticed it was flashing the security light on the dash. so i pulled the bypass out and had the computer reset by a scanner and all is well now. i hope it cures it
