Sometimes dies and fails to start go back to it later and it will start. Replaced starter and switch, relay, battery and e.C.M.

Do you
have the same problem?

When the problem occurs, are you saying it cranks good but won't start or it won't even crank? Any applicable trouble codes?

If it won't even crank, check the starter circuit. Any testing, make sure the tranny is in park or neutral and the e-brake is set. Do you have a security system on this?

It will not crank, it flashes no codes, has a new starter relay in it, have checked starter circuit, tranny is in park, no security system.

Cranking is starter action. Has to be an issue with starter circuit, somewhere. Or the engine is siezed? Can you turn the crank by hand?
