Starter tries to engage while the engine is running, tried a new relay but still happening

Intermittent starting issue

Engine not cranking. Battery, alternator and starter motor replaced. Sometimes starts, other times nothing. Instrument panel looks normal with no fault codes or warning lights but gives the impression of a flat battery. Suggestions please.

Starter motor no crank when engine warm or hot

Starter motor works fine in normal circumstances but no crank after a run. The system seems to have to cool down for a while before restarting. The RAC traced the problem to a 20A fuse but replacing this is a short term solution. This fuse ...
