You either have a poor ground causing the voltage to be held up and not flowing to the starter.
#2 the starter may be the cause,if it has a lot of starts on it, the inside can be worn and the armature is dragging.

Change the starter and the solenoid. The starter is drawing to much current for the solenoid to handle. Meaning the starter is on it's way out and the solenoid is on it way to because of the starter.

I just change the battery and cables on my 96 lincon town car and it started fine but after it runs for 20mins or so and you turn it off then it will not crank (no turning of starter at all) a hour later...

i think the starter is getting too hot. either heat from the exhaust manifold or cat. converter. check where the bat. cable connects to the starter. that little part is getting too hot. making the starter not work. you might replace the starter but after a short time it will do it again.
