BlackMagicI have been told that the cause is easy to diagnose, but finding exactly what to change is more tricky. I have had this for several years with my S2 and I still have to finally track it down. The thought is that some damp/water has got into the electrics....somewhere. The engine starts fine but as it warms up the water turns to steam/vapour and causes a poor connection and the car cuts out. Leave the wiring next to a warm engine for 20 or 30 minutes and it dries out and the car starts again and runs fine. Its very annoying and difficult to track down. Please do post if you find the offending article. Good luckWilliam
white944DME relay is easy to eliminate. do the 3 wire bypass trick. Could be a crank reference sensor going kaputt.
GlennSIf it suddenly cuts out, with no spluttering or coughing, and the revs just drop to zero then my money is on the speed/reference sensors. I had all sorts of fun with mine. Random cut outs when driving along, occasionally reluctant starts... sometimes it would start and idle for a couple of minutes and then just stop dead.
