2004 5.0 Chevrolet suburban problem I'm having is After

Customer Question

2004 5.0 Chevrolet suburban problem I'm having is
After shutting the car off it will not restart until it gets damn good and ready to. Normally about 45 minutes later. The starter has been replaced along with the starter relay. Good battery voltage.
When key is turned on all gauges work along with all accessories. No "click" when switching to start position to indicate starter solenoid has engaged

I've had it at mechanic shop twice $1100.00 later still the same thing I'm at work now so cannot get to it right now

we need to do a few quick tests to see what is going on

when it is acting up with your fingers on the starter relay do you feel the relay click with your fingers ?

if you do NOT feel it click when holding the key to the crank position does the fuse called CRANK in the under hood fuse box show 12 volts when holding the key to crank ?
