electrical and starting issues

Hey everyone! Hope all is well. Have two strange issues that have been a concern. The first issue occurs when I tool around town, stopping and starting my 90 YJ Wrangler with a Chevy 350. She usually starts when I turn the key; however, every so often when I perform a series of stop and starts, I will turn the key and absolutely nothing will happen. No clicking, no noises, only things observed working are gauges. When this occurs, I also notice that the electrical wiring under the dash is very hot to the touch. Any suggestions? And if anyone suggests a new wiring harness or re-wire, would adding an additional fuse three to six fuse box and wires do the trick in lieu of a complete re-wire harness?

Thanks in advance for your help.

First thing I would check is making sure all wires on the starter is nice and snug

I would check for power dist connectors and chassis / engine grounds could be failing once they get warmed up. Look for grease or dirty grime.
