is the engine turning over normaly when it doesnt start?
You are correct.
The engine turns over fine then starts when reconnected.
Leave the car for a while and it will not start.
It really does seem like the imobiliser as as there is n fuel or spark.
Lifting the leads off and back on again seems to reset it.
