Are you restarting from d3dump (SMP) or d3full (MPP) data that was written at the end of a dynamic relaxation analysis? If so, I suggest that instead of attempting a full restart (which even if done correctly may exhibit a lack of robustness), you use the drdisp.sif data written at the end of the dynamic relaxation and IDRFLG=2 in *CONTROL_DYNAMIC_RELAXATION to initialize to a prescribed geometry. I invite others with automotive experience to contribute their suggestions/comments.
