I had the same problem a while ago. Changed everything you can imagine, but didn't find the fault.
Turned out it was the MAF sensor. Expensive part if you buy genuine (don't buy one off Ebay!). But, you can get a much cheaper "pattern" part from a reputable parts company (about half the price, and work just the same).
The MAF sensor does NOT throw up a fault unless it fails completely, so don't expect to find one in the ECU.
It's very easy to change out, so you could try the problem by "borrowing" a sensor from somewhere else, just to prove the theory, before buying a new one.

DEFINETLY THE IGNITION MODULE, WHEN THE "CHIP" HEATS UP, IT OPENS CIRCUIT THUS ALL POWER TO THE PLUGS IS LOST DUE TO AN INOPERATIONAL COIL.

I am pretty sure that fault code P0698 is for your throttle position sensor, or accelerator position sensor. Often, as this fails, you can clear the code, and it will come back on during throttle movement.

If the ecu is under the battery tray(plastic unboltable), remove the tray and check for contamination around the plugs. commonish fault with the 1.9

same symptoms i had but my solution was very elusive and therefore costly----the main connection of electricity from the battery to the machinery was stripped and would not come completely off but would lose contact for a few seconds at a time intermittently and sometimes for hours. the part was 7 dollars but it cost 1500 to find it out.
