[DML] Hot Start Solution

OK, I have owned my Delorean for well over 10 years and it now has 
12,200 miles on it.  I really like the car but I have spent way more 
than I should have on the proverbial "hot start" problem.  

I took the car to Garden Grove from San Diego no less than 5 times 
with the exact same problem.  I spent well over $4,000 on the hot 
start problem and changed the accumulator, various fuel components 
and even the fuel distributor and still, I have a hot start problem.

About the only thing that has not been changed are the fuel injectors 
and I assuming now that this is probably the culprit.  At this point, 
I am afraid to drive the car as once I drive it, and if I let it sit 
for more than 30 minutes, it will not restart.

Today, I purchased a $1.13 part.  I bought a momentary switch and I 
shall wire it as per the instructions contained in several of the 
posts to a spot under the left side of my dash.  Hopefully, 
this "modification" will work and I will once again have a dependable 

The instructions are well done and the connector in the fuse 
compartment was easy to find.  This "mod" should have been either 
automated by the factory or included as a standard accessory on all 

I know you are going to say to take it to a vendor and have them fix 
it and my response is that I have, at least 5 times and all that I 
get is a bill and no solution to this annoying design problem.

The car is wonderful and I am not a "newbie" to the ownership 
experience, but this particular issue is clearly a design flaw that 
prevents this automobile from being a reliable product.

Any thoughts?
