Sable - no juice to starter

I have a 2001 Sable that has an intermittent starting problem. After the car sits overnight, occasionally (that's the key word) it will not start. No juice to starter, no crank, no noise, nothing. Battery is good, lights don't dim while switch is engaged. It's like the connection to the starter is off. Come back in an hour and it works just fine. It continues to work fine for a week or two and then does it again. Indie shop AND dealer have found nothing wrong. It acts like the old neutral safety switches use to act when failing. All wires to battery and starter are tight, not corroded. ECM and air compressor were replaced a short time ago, not sure if related. Any ideas appreciated.

Re: Sable - no juice to starter

I would slap a new starter relay in it and see if it comes back with that problem.
