I cant figure this out. Sometimes when I shut my car off, then return to get in and go, it doesn't crank. It makes no noise at all. If I continue to try and crank it it still doesnt crank. HOWEVER, if I leave it alone for several minutes without trying then it will crank. It doesnt do this all the time. It does it when I least expect it. Ive already had the starter redone, checked battery cables. I'm lost on this one. Any clue or suggestions of the problem?

Try starting it in neutral, maybe your neutral safety switch is no good.

Well you need tyo make sure the battery terminals are tight and also check with a test light to see if the starter is getting powser when you are trying to start it.
