Here are some posts that may be of use:

 

Reading the above posts are a good place to start but first I would take it to a garage (or using your own device) read the fault codes that are triggered by the problem because without that there's not much else we can do except guess what's going on.

 

My best guess is that it could be dirty leads or broken leads, coil pack or a sensor that is linked to reading the engine management of some sort. I'm no expert and don't have push start or anything like that on my KA so can't add anymore. It has Fiat electrics so could be something there that is buggered. The engines as a whole are generally pretty good from what I've read about and that it tends to be an electronics fault.

So get some codes found out and research them and let us know how you get on :) Hope this helps.
