I had a similar problem on my 93 9000CSE (Auto box). The problem was small pieces of carbon or charcoal-like ( sorry I don't know their exact name in english ) conductors inside the starter. As far as I understood, they tend to stick when hot , and this prevented them to conduct electricity to the starter motor. These charcoals were replaced and the problem was solved. Temporarily try turning off every electrical appliance in the car after the first stop of the ignition. This will help your battery pass every bit of power to the starter and may force the charcoals to conduct. Hope this helps. * Sent from RemarQ The Internet's Discussion Network * The fastest and easiest way to search and participate in Usenet - Free!
