i was having the same problem with my truck but i also had problems with my foglights working half the time and my gauges going on and off.... as well as a lot of other things. turns out there is the main connector under the dash that connects everything in the dash to everything under the hood... it was loose on my truck and it was causing my starting problems. i spent a long time trouble shooting until i started tracing wires and found the plug. tightened it up and i have not had a problem since.




most likely it will not be your problem but its one of those wierd things to check really quick
