Have starter load tested. it's your solinoid Older Chevy's are known for this problem. it is because the starter and selonoid are so close to the exhaust that they get hot. this causes more resistence in the selonoid so it just needs to cool down. Try some heat shielding to prevent the problem.

If the starter/solenoid does not fix the issue...you should also check the ignition module and the cap/rotor. Had the exact same issue. The module will over heat when you have a bad rotor or cap. When it's cold it will start right up, but if you ran the car to the store and tried to restart, it wouldn't start for at least 10 minutes. Then it would start fine. Turned out the rotor was bad, which was causing excessive voltage requirements which overheated the ignition module. Changed them, and, voila, problem gone.

What are the uses of automated parking lights?

"Parking Lights" or Running lights are there so your vehicle can be seen from all sides in the dark. The automated means that they come on and turn off automatically under certain lighting conditions. They are helpful because the human eye tends to see more light than is actually there when driving near dusk or in early Dawn. IF you are driving for several hours and it starts toi get dark, your eyes think it is lighter than it is because they have adjusted gradually with the decrease in natural light.
