Welcome to SCoA! :D

What happens when you try to restart it before 10 minutes?

I would check your battery connections & condition as well as your brake light switch. You can try placing your shifter in neutral & see if the engine will start. Good luck & let us know what you find out.

Check the heavy cable where it attaches to the starter. It’s on the bottom of the engine and can be seen from the driver side. Because it’s exposed, it can get oxidized and corrode to the point where there isn’t enough current handing capabilities to turn the starter.
