E-28 Dies then restarts

Advice

My E-28 drives then abrubtly dies on me inexplicably - (could be idling at a stop light - driving ) . Immediately I try to restart (the engine turns over) no firing - _ Then I wait 5-10 minutes (not to drain the battery) and it then immediately restarts.

Is this something grounding out, relay? poor connection? poor ground, cracked wire - Cannot even get the car to a mechanic. Thanks for any advice.

TC
