When I try to start my sore ya for the first time that day it starts up fine. But it doesn't start up again when it's hot I changed crank sensor, I cleared code with scanner, check battery terminals, check main relay used throttle body cleaner to see if it's a fuel pump issue. I also tried putting my foot on gas pedal before I start it to see if engine is flooded with fuel and still can't figure it out I think it might be electrical but I check spark pug, wires and coils still not the problem I don't know what it is

Will the engine start with starting fluid for a few seconds? Have you checked fuel pump pressure? Have you checked to see if there is spark to the plugs when it doesn't start?

With an aftermarket component like that, I am at a loss. I have no schematics or anything to review. I guess I am back to my original question. Is there spark and fuel to the engine when it doesn't start?

Yes It is getting fuel and spark it just doesn't want to crank over we check all fuses and relays for fuel and checked coils and spark plugs as well as the starter. I don't know what else is there to check

Okay, if it won't crank, have you checked to see if there is power to the starter when the key is in the start position? If there is, then suspect the starter. If there is no power and the starter relay is good, then I would question the security system that was installed.
