Without additional detail, this would be tough to diagnose, however the fact that it just shut down out of nowhere as you've described suggests that some kind of sensor or relay may have triggered this. I would suggest having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose your starting issue and hook the car up with a scanning tool which will download data from your car's computer that will be helpful in diagnosing the problem. When type of thing happens, your car's computer will register fault or trouble codes in it's database. When those are downloaded, they will point to potential causes of the problem.
