Super late answer, same thing happened to me. I would be able to start again and drive a bit but the engine would cut out again. After one trip where no codes were found they cleaned my throttle body, happened again and it finally gave a code dealing with the lower crank position sensor. 80$ to replace, been good for 6 months.

Mine did this and required a repair to the instrument cluster in the dash costing £450.
