Hello- 156 1.6 twin dead - alive - no dead - alive

156 cuts out while driving refuses to start but will turn over
Dash lights -when dead ,yellow car with padlock and yellow triangle with circle around it
Every thing else okay when driving eg oil water electrics etc
If I go back to car a few hours later it will fire up and run no problem
When it is dead management light flashes furiously
There is no warning it does not splutter it just goes dead as thou it had been switched off but with dash lights still on
Thanks for your help in advance

i would be inclined to say crank senser too but the lights are odd.

is the immobilisor in play all the time the engine is running or it is it only used at start up?
