Solved!! After all this messing around and cutting wires and multiple disassemblies.....I finally figured it out. It was doing the same thing again. So I pulled the cabinet and started wiggling wires with it in the ON position. All of a sudden it starts working. Right when I wiggle the single white wire right next to the motor plug. I saw it spark a little. so I repaired the connection and haven't had a problem since. I still need to replace the hood switch, but that's all. Done.
