    The starter will not engage unless repeated turns of the ignition switch on first start of the day. Later the same day starts first time even if parked for 8 hours.

    Would begin by cleaning up battery terminals, alternator terminals, starter terminals
    And clean up all grounding points, straps (battery and engine)
    Then see if it is any better

    Did all suggested items but wife reports still has problem. Starting to suspect its in the starter but have not replaced it yet. Seems to improve in warmer weather.

    Thanks for the update.
    If it were me then I would also wait for warmer weather to change the starter

    Good luck
