What code was it? It helps because you can look it up and narrow it down some more...

If you have 2 keys try the other one for starters.

Otherwise temp sensor is a good candidate if your temp gauge is reading off.

If the spark plugs have no spark and injectors do not receive fuel when it does not start then check/replace the Hall sender (G40)

Fault of immobilizer causes the engine to stop to a one second after starting.

evening folks,the seat runs fine till warms up then cuts out for while to cool down I guess . so far car has had new distributor ,coolant sensor,ignition coil,leads are ok,new plugs,new ignition switch,just cant pinpoint fault or with scan unit . I think it might be ecu fault,has anybody come across this fault or similar . thanx muchly

Get VCDS on it and read the temperatures there, if the ecu is reading very wrong temps from the sensor it will be throwing a wobbly, if the temps look about right then it is elsewhere.
