    Take it to an Auto electrical shop in your area and get the battery starter motor tested.

    Could be a faulty starter struggling when hot/warm.

    Vehicle : vauxhall vivaro

    need to give people chance.

    as a above starter and battery need checking.

    go into halfords and you should get a free battery check.
    they use Bosch machine which is very good bit of kit.

    after that it would require a good garage/ electrical testing place to check starter.
