I was wondering if anyone could help, For the past 2 weeks I have had trouble starting my car. For a few months now it would randomly cut out when I first started it but soon as i turned it back on, it would start straight away and from then on be fine for a while. 2 weeks ago though it did this again and this time when I went to start it. It just kept cranking over after a few attempts I left it for 10 minutes then went back to it and it started straight away no issue from then on out it has continually happen more and more often at times taking alot more cranks and attempt to get it started. Sometime I could attempt to start 4/6 and let it crank again and again and again before it finally starts though I have found if I leave it for 15 minutes and come back to it, it usually takes less to get it going again. Though with that said once it is started, it runs fine as far I can tell, it has never cut out while idling in traffic or anything along them lines.
I took it to a Mechanic on Friday and he attached the Diagnostic Scanner but unfortunately he had never seen one of the fault codes that appeared before but once he cleared them, the car start first go without issue, and then he left it running and repeated it again and then it started again the first time. So he told me that clearing it, may have fixed whatever the issue was but if he doesn't i would have to bring it back for a deeper inspection (which is going to potentially cost a fair bit depending on whether he able to find out what wrong with it).So I left the mechanic I had to stop at the shops when i went back to the car it did it random cut out like I stated above but this time it started back up straight away like it use, this did it a few more times until about saturday night when the issue started up again where the car would just keep cranking and cranking before it started.
So I was wondering if any of you have had any experience with this issue? and could give me help/advice to as what is wrong with it. I have posted the fault codes he recieved below and apologises If I have gone into too much detail and dragged this out, I figure it would be better to type everything then to not give enough information.

Try This link for a pdf file on fault codes and use the pdf view to find the code but it wont give You much more info than what you have.
Sounds almost like an ecu possible problem. If it does the fault with the car, when at the mechanic, get them to do a computer presence check
