Would think it would be more likely to be coil pack ,which is a very common fault also check plugs at same time .

I drove my zafira for around 10 mins and suddenly it cut out! I tried to start it but just turned over but would not start. I noticed when i turned the ignition on the engine management light did not come on with the other lights. I tried again but no joy. I waited for arround an hour and turned the ignition on and the engine managment light did come on with the other lights and it then did start! I can't now drive the car for long until it cuts out and would not start again until the engine managment light comes on.
I have tried the pedal test but nothing flashes or any readings.
Could this be the immobiliser?
Please can anyone help?
