Help 156 starting problems

I've had intermittent starting problems with my 156 1.8 TS (51 plate). In June I had a new ECU reader fitted, however the problem is still occuring.

Basically, the code light does not always come on when starting. Normally I get round it by unplugging the fuses in the battery and waiting a couple of minutes. Last night I was stuck in an underground car park, tried my usual fix which didn't work - as soon as I was towed outside, the code light appeared and it started fine.

The car started ok for a couple of months, however in the past week it has failed to start about 10 times.

The car is due at a dealers next week - they had a quick look at it this week but were unfamiliar with the problem).

Anyone had similar problems?
