    Default Starting issues

    Hi Everyone,

    Noticed something recently with my 81 vette. Car starts fine when the car is cold, drive it around for a while. Car heats up. Shut off the car , wait awhile and try to restart and it seems like I have no power, nothing lights up on the dashboard and it doesn't start. I try a few times and eventually starts. Any ideas why this is happening?

    Make sure battery cables are clean and tight.

    Have you checked both ends of each cable?
