There are systems on cars that when defective are susceptible to heat and will just stop working. Could be bad coils. Or it could be leaking injectors flooding a hot engine, and in time the excess fuel dissipates and the cooled engine starts again. In your case, with the battery reset, it also might be a defective engine coolant temperature sensor.
