The car start without problemwhen it is cold, but after driving 15 - 20 minutes it will not start again. When key is turned it tiries to start an turns the engine 2,3, times and then dies. When it is cold again it starts without problem. This situation has lasted for a long time. This problem do not throw any fautcode on STAR eighter.  It seemes to loose steering power to the starter relay in the fusebox on the right side in the engine room. Possible ECU problem?

Okay,

 

Can you be more clear here?

 

The car does not have any problem when it's cold and you start it? But after 15-20 mins it stops while driving?

 

Or after you go somewhere and shut the car and start again, it won't start?

 

Sorry just trying to understand the problem here

Yes, if you stop the engine, it won´t start any more. You have to wait to it has cooled down, then you can start it again. Have "however" found an emergecy solution for getting it to start again. It is very ennoying to just stand there... It is as follows, take of the housing of the relay mentioned earlier activate it with my fingers simuntaniously as you turn the key to startposition. But this is not a very elegant solution of the problem and you need to be two persons. Have also tried different keyes but the same problem occures. Can a bad component, bad soldering point on the ECU cause this? this has crossed my mind.

Would appreciate any suggestion concerning this matter.
