Running problems

I have an EA S pack with intermittant electrical problem.
Every so often the car stops, with the rev counter falling to zero. Sometimes I can start by pumping throtle, and sometime by going and Neutral and starting again while rolling. Often I have had to wait 15 mins and start again.
I have had the car in the mechanics and they have not been able to fault it. It produces to alarm codes. The coil has been changed, but not sure what to change next??

Anyone seen anything similiar?
