WTH? I drove for about a half hour and stopped. When I went to restart the engine, the starter seemed as if it wasn't there at all. All I could hear was the fuel relay click and NOTHING else. After a half hour or so, the starter came back without any issue what so ever.
The engine runs normally, all other electrical devices operate normally, the battery is nicely charged, etc etc. I've never known a starter to not operate when the engine hits full temp...
I plan to crawl under my beast, remove every connection on the starter, clean them and reinstall tightly.
I'd be curious if this is something anyone else has seen...
