    Default 3.2 V6 wont start or cuts out when hot

    Hi all,

    Please help before I have to take it into the local Vx dealer.

    My Signum 3.2 V6 seems to cut out when hot on occasion. It hapenned twice yesterday, however the car was hot at the time and stuck in traffic.

    It has also decided to not start on occasion, this also seems to be when the engine is warm, does not happen on initial start up when the engine is cold.

    Green Flag came out to the car yesterday when it cut out in heavy traffic. The Green Flag bloke believes it is giving the symptoms of a dead battery however the battery and charging system is fine after he checked it. He believed it is an electrical fault but does not know where, says it could be an earth somewhere int he electrical system.

    When trying to start the car again when it has cut out or will not start there is not even the sound of the starter motor engaging. As I said so the battery and charging system are fine and have been checked.

    Any help given would be greatly appreciated, got a long drive up to Scotland with the family at the weekend. Please help!!!


    Thanks

    John

    If a hot prob normally 8/10 times its the rpm sensor but would get checked first

    would that cause it to cut out when running as well as stop it from starting?

    The starter motor will not even turn when the fault appears, does that sound about right?
