    I'm not sure what you mean by a "starter button", do you mean a remote starter that connects to the battery and the starter?

    sounds like heat soak in the starter or a weak/bad solenoid. Try putting a new solenoid on the starter, (about $10-15) and a heat shield of some sort between the starter and the exhaust manifold.
