2001 Lupo GTI Randomly Cutting out at traffic lights?

Recommended Posts

As the title suggests,

My Lupo every so often (doesn't happen every day) will cut out at traffic lights during idle. Nothing is pressed, the clutch is out, no indicators on, not in gear, handbrake on etc etc. I can't figure it out, it's only started doing it recently.

The only way i've found to get it going again (If you try to start it the engine just turns over - doesn't spark) is to take the key out, open the bonnet, close the bonnet and put the key in and let all ignition lights go off before starting it.

Very irritating, but it drives spot on the rest of the time - no loss of power, no weird idle blah blah blah.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers guys
