Has the alternator ben checked? Or is the starter dragging?


Sounds like a heat related issue and an electronic component. Will need to check the related components when the condition persists in non-start condition only. Electronic test equipment required.


When u say it doesn't start, i assume it doesn't turn over (crank) if ur replacing switch and battery. If that's the case, check the starter and cables. Check signal goig to solenoid at the starter
