Engine will not crank after sitting for a while, though with a battery charger's 75 amp starter setting it will crank and start OK. If it cranks at all, it's full speed, no slow cranking. All or nothing.

Note: When a remote starter switch is connected to starter solenoid's S terminal and battery terminal, it cranks just fine.

I'd have to make sure the battery has a full charge and the battery connections are good. That purple wire at the solenoid S terminal, is hot, whith the key in the crank position? Check without using a jumper or anything.
