Does anyone know where the ignition starter relay is located?

I purchased this relay to check if it fixes the issue. Also are there any fuses that may be causing this problem?

Pretty sure all the relays related to the DME and starter are in the e-box in the rear of the engine compartment on the RHS.

Disconnect battery... reconnect after oh say 45 min. Thats what I would start with. Also, Id make sure I had a fully charged battery.

Can I disconnect the battery from under the front hood?

What does that mean? Are you saying that only the starter and ignition gets disconnected from the front battery terminals?

Correct...car is still alive. Various modules are still fed power from the rear.

Yeah, inside that e-box.

"Starter relay" is a generic term. There are several relays related to the starter system. If you are referring to the EWS interlock relay (K6324) then it's here: -
