Chances are that the wire going to your solenoid is just getting too hot to allow electricity to pass through it. The remote solenoid will fix that. I don't know if you are having this problem all the time or just when it gets hot. Either way you will have to get to your starter and disconnect the wires and also add a jumper from the large hot terminal to the "S" terminal. If you are wanting to add a remote solenoid so that you won't have to mess with getting into your starter, this isn't the answer. I know that vettes are mighty snug under the hood. The remote solenoid can be installed up away from the headers where the air is much cooler.
