Default No start after sitting in the sun all day

2007 2.4L non turbo. I am having a reoccuring issue of a no crank/no start after sitting in the sun all day. It's the oddest thong I've ever encountered in my up and down woes of being a PT Owner. When I turn the key to start, the dash lights up, but it does not crank, or partially cranks and then stops. Here is the most odd part, of it is sitting in the shade all day, it'll crank right up! Once I do get it to start after sitting out, it cranks every time after that like normal. Only happens while I'm and qork and the car sits in the parking lot. Starter has a constant 12v, and the battery has a normal charge. I pulled the IOD fuse to check for lock up of the wireless module, and it still wouldn't start. Any ideas?!?! Everyone is stumped!

Welcome to the forum even though you joined in 2013

You already have a similar thread started:

2007 Cruiser wont start when its hot outside

It's best not to have multiple threads on the same issue as members can get confused on what they may have already replied to, and can lead to the same answers in multiple threads.

I had no reply to the other thread and thought I may have posted it in the wrong section.
