Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang here to help!!Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail. Do not rate yet, just reply. Put yourself in my shoes, I can not see, smell, hear, feel or touch your car, nor do I know any history on it. So take into consideration I am doing my best based on what you tell me. Also understand fixing cars often requires sophisticated tools, that you may not own. So even if you can not do what is outlined in my answer, that does not mean my answer is wrong deserving to be rated negative. Mike on your vehicle , you need to have a test light at the small wire of the starter to see if it a starter itself or the wiring . this is the logical way to get to the root cause by tracing the circuit . also was a scan test performed to see if there are any faults in any of the modules? please let me know

Not had a scan test done, there is no click or anything when the engine is hot but as soon as it cools down it starts straight away

that is why the test light and scan tool is needed to narrow down the possibilities much more quickly !! lets see first on the hot start issue with the test light and see if you have a light or not better a volt meter to read the voltage!!
