This is the hot start problem we have on the TNT's. Dealer says starter motor. others say meshing of Alternator shaft/gears.
Any way both need to be replaced on certain models of TNT's.
If my CR cuts out when hot, just when fans come on it will do the same thing as described. My dealer has a new starter for me.
It is not the batery.
If you let it stand for a couple of minutes it will start fine.
I have asked my dealer to look into the Aussie fixit list.

If it's the alternator drive shaft/Z25 gear, and the shaft eventually breaks due to constant flexing, you'll be in a world of pain.
Don't wait. Get it replaced - now.

Ferret, if you have the old type of alternator drive shaft and Z25 gear that fail get them replaced whether they are the cause of your starting problem or not. The consequences of it breaking aren't worth thinking about:blowup:

The revised shaft and gear are distinguished from the old type by an arrow etched on the shaft and gear (see pic courtesy of Engenia). The clutch cover needs to be removed for a visual check, see page 61 of the maintenance manual for a pic showing the shaft and gear, shaft and gear detailed at 1 o'clock position behind clutch.
