Starter continous cranking

I pressed the start button in my MY11 Hemi this afternoon and the starter kept cranking the engine without the engine starting. It did it three times in a row. I could only stop the cranking by pressing the button to shut it off. I let the starter rest for 30 seconds or so and then the engine started correctly. Have I missed an earlier post or TSB?

Dead fuel pump relay? possibly TIPM related?

Starter continous cranking

Happened to me twice since 2012. V6 though. One time when I went to remote start - a fool of appearance was made. No idea of the cause. I guess only Honda's start one time, every time.

Mine does this occasionally. Dealer told me that my TIPM fuel relay recall was already performed so it couldn't be that. They made me use my other key for a while saying that the car probably wasn't recognizing the key that i was using. Of course that didn't change anything. Now they are changing their tone on the fuel relay, but its still not fixed.
