You need to scan the car for error codes. It could be a bad crankshaft sensor, usually doesn't start straight away. Also, could be a faulty alternator regulator producing an over voltage (16v+).

Battery connections - inc the one to rear of main fuse panel - but with Jake - see what codes it gives, all you know at the moment is you don't know enough...

Good Luck :)

Many many years ago I had a Rx7 (or wife did) and that started cutting out, all electrics still live, come to a halt and few mins later start fine and run fine till coupla days later cut out again....
That was the little sealing disc from a redex bottle that had been tipped into the petrol tank, it'd float around and every so often get sucked onto outbound fuel feed, car would stop and after a few mins float away, car start and be fine.

When we found it (tank out and drained on front grass) one 'person' remarked that the redex bottle had been leaking..... such is life :)
