When driving extended period of time(45 minutes or longer), car will not start after turning off ignition until it has cooled off for 20-30 minutes. When turning the ignition all electronics turn on but it's as though the starter locks up when hot. Then when cooled off it'll fire back up with no problems.

Hi cardsfan! Hope you enjoyed opening night (up until the game of course!). You are going to think I'm nuts but this sounds like fuel injector issues to me. Get them checked by a pro. Good luck!

its most likely your vats system is not reading your coded vat in the key,ecklers sells a bypass harness for your car
