So if you come home in the evening, shut the car off, pull the battery cable off for 10 minutes, reconnect it and wait 8-12 hours the car 'fires right up'? Is that what you are describing?

Or is it that your car 'fires right up" only works right after the reconnect of the battery cable and thus shortly after the shutdown?

Is this car new to you? Was it ever in a flood or water under the seats situation?

Was the starter solenoid replaced?

If you just turn it off and wait 8-12 hours, what is the battery voltage? Any lights on the dash then when the starter doesn't engage?

Trying to figure out if a relay is hanging, a battery drain is occurring, or if the replacement ignition switch is suspect?
