Intermittently wont start when warm.

Thanks in advance for any insight you can help me with.

My WRX will start when the engine is cold every time. Intermittently if i go into a store turn the engine off the car sits for 5-30 minutes after i've driven it the car won't start. The engine will crank but nothing (brand new battery). The curious thing is the car will push start every time when in this state. I have also noticed that if i disconnect the battery negative terminal for 3-5 min then put it back on then the car will start even with the car being warm (normal operating temperature).

I've replaced the fuel filter and fuel lines as they were cracked and needed replaced.

Once again great sight and thanks for the help. Oh I'm a service member stationed in Japan so this Subaru is a Japanese model right side drive car.

I know you said it was a "new" battery... but go get it tested to rule it out. Some, if not most batteries will sit on the shelf for who knows how long...

FYI... fill out your account info (car info as well)... It will help.
