Please don't use capitals. It'* considered YELLING on an internet forum.

Please REMOVE AND CLEAN all connections to and from your battery. Both ends of each cable. You have a classic symptom of corroded batter feed/supply connections.

Might be the crank sensor behind the harmonic balancer. Mine would usually start after sitting overnight. It would quit at any time before I replaced it.

Also, please clean the battery cables ... all connections at both ends of each cable.

i had bad bearings on my original alternator at about 140,000kms.

The car would start up and then 10-15 minutes later when
at a stop, the car would shutdown. It would not shutdown when driving though.

something to consider?

Did you check under the boots for corrosion?

Check the connector on the ICM (electronic part under coil packs). Look for corrosion and to ensure the holding bolt is snug.

Follow the wiring from the ICM to the crank and cam sensors looking for any rubbed or broken wires.
