Hello, when the problem occurs, check for voltage at the crank fuse. That circuit should only be hot, with the key in the crank position, once the key returns to the run position, there should be no voltage on that circuit. No voltage to the control side of relay, no starter action.

Because that circuit is wired through the neutral switch, only continuity in park or neutral.
