A car needs gas and spark to run. When the car is not running, it either is not getting gas or not getting spark. The crankshaft position sensors are one of the biggest no start problems. They can work intermittently. Do first check all your relays and fuses. Then test for spark, then fuel.

Without a wiring diagram and the vehicle,the mechanics you had check it out, would be your only choice ,to get to the solution to your starting problems
The Fuel Pump is almost always the problem
The other components that turn it on should also be checked

As I stated,if the repair shops you go to ,do not have an online subcription to AllData,Mitchell,Etc.,they won't know anything about your vehicle, or have a diagnostic path to follow.
That is what I suspect.
The days of wishing,hoping,pushing,poking, are long gone,some 30 years ago.
These vehicles are too technical,and if you got no electrical skills,your better to seek another career path.

Intermittently won't start (2008 LR2 HSE)

I would separate the problems into 3 categories and see if they collectively point to one common defective part.
1. Instrument Panel power problem. Check to find if there is a Relay and how it gets power and what else is powered by the same Relay. Sometimes a Backlite bulb is just going out.
2. Engine Performance Low. This alert should have printed material in some Manual about all of the causes for this Warning. The BEST scanners predict causes by "most likely" to occur listed first, and follow to least likely. The Mechanic acts accordingly.
3. Ignition key reader/ Programmable Keychip. You need to have the Key reader identify the Keychip and a good Keychip to read. Maybe new Ignition switch.
I would be interested in the outcome of this case. Also look at site to reference your make and model vehicle for Recalls, reported problems, TSB's.
Please advise if this has been helpful.

These vehicles are known for faulty antitheft systems. When they start to fail, the car turns off the fuel injectors as a theft deterrent. Next time it stalls, look for a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT. If you see this light, this link will help you.

Sounds like its a starter problem,if you can pull the starter off take it to an auto parts store,

there are many locations that have equipment to put a load on the starter, and they will be

able to tell if its bad. once you pull the starter off, if you can check the teeth on the fly wheel,

if there is a dead spot, the starter could spin and not engage the flywheel. I hope it's the

starter. the bendix on the starter the teeth that engage the flywheel could also have dead

spot's. and not engage all the time. good luck!
