Warm Starting Problem

I had exactly the same problem last year. It turned out to be the 
ignition switch. Next time it happens, turn off the ignition switch and 
then back on. Maybe you'll need a reattempt or two. If it helps, it's 
the ignition switch. You'd have to disassemble it, clean the contacts, 
use a sparse amount of contact spray and put it back on, then it should 
be all right again.
