hey im helping a buddy with his 16 GT 5.0 it starts most of the time but when it gets hot it will no want to start again, it is a no spin no start once hot, it will just click. i told him sounds like the starter so we replaced it, didnt change so i replaced starter solenoid and replaced the start again just to be sure didnt get a bad part, still wanting to do the same thing. tried scanning it found no codes. i cant think of anything else. i made sure the ground on the block was tight and all the nuts and bolts were tight. any help would be awesome

Check the battery terminals as well. I had a similar issue with my 17 Gt where the battery leaked and internally corroded the terminals. Sometimes it wouldn’t start when hot.

Check the battery cables , can turn green internally due to corrosion . Flexing them can often expose green dust giving a sign if corroding inside .
i dont see any but i have been looking at the herness that comes from bjb to starter, i tried ohming it out but biggest problem is the concern is intermitted and wont do it all the time. thinking about repalcing the harness that leads to starter

11 volts , battery is dud but could try charging it and then load test . Also test your alternator charging rate when battery problem solved .
