Multijet starting

I am a little perplexed as to what is the fault with one of my two 1.3 multijet Puntos. It is a 2003 model with about 46,000 miles on the clock.

The problem is, it won't sometimes start when it is warm. The engine will not even turn over when the fault occurs.

JCS have changed the TDC sensor - that was the only fault examiner found. The battery has been replaced with a new Exide from Costco and the starter has been reconditioned by a local auto electrician.

What else could be wrong? If it would just not start I expect the fault could be traced!
