2002 wrx having probes starting again

Hi,
I'm hoping someone might be able to help me. I have a 2002 bugeye and when I start it in the morning It starts first time. As soon as I start driving and turn it off I can't start it again till it cools off. When I turn the key I need to hear this fan thing before it will kick over. I know this sounds stupid but I just need some ideas before I take it to Subaru so they don't rip me off.. Thanks in advance. Some people are saying its the key? Some are saying crank cam angle sensor?

Hi Bob, I have no idea what the fan noise is. It comes up with the engine light on the dash and i hear some sort of fan and it will start. If both of them arent together then it doesnt start. I am obviously a girl and I dont have any merchanic friends so thats why im trying to find out on here.

Re: 2002 wrx having probes starting again

If you read the linked item you would see it covers your year and model of car
"1 x ECU Coolant Temperature Switch

3 Wire sensor V5 & V6 Late 1998 to 2000
Impreza WRX & STi EJ205 & EJ207 2000 to 2008

Subaru Part Number: 22630AA161
",
so yes, buy that part or similar on your continent and get it fitted,

If your computer savy you can buy a 10 obd lead and some free software to check it.
