Hot or over heated starter
My car starts then when I run it and drive I stop shut it off wait 5 min and it will
not start again there is power to headlights radio and dome lights. Someone told
me that maybe my starter or heated how can I check this because if I wait for 30
min it will start again.
Do you hear a loud "CLICK" when you try to crank it over? If you do then it is a good chance that the starter as developed a thermal open in one of it circuits. If you don't hear the click then I would start checking the main power and ground feed wiring for corrosion or just being loose.
There will be another cable from the starter relay to the starter. but if you don't hear the click then you need to check for battery power at the small wire on the starter relay when you turn the key to crank, if it is there then the relay is bad or loose, if there is no voltage then it could be the safety switch or even the ignition switch providing the wiring is in good shape.
also have the battery load tested please.
