Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
Yes the issue that you are having is consistent with the engine relay having a faulty or failing coil inside or the ecu is loosing communication with the vehicle and needs to be reset or reflashed.

What is reflashed meaning please.

Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 3 years ago.
The reflashing is done with the use of a dealer diagnostic tool which resets the ecu.
