My friend has an issue with his crankshaft sensor, the car wouldn't start if it was warm. Sounds very similar to your issue that the crankshaft doesn't know what position it is on and won't combust the fuel starting the car.

It was a easy fix on his Saab just replaced the sensor and it's worked since.

Mine went. 20 mins and a sensor later and no problem after that. Cost about £80 odd
