When it could not start after stalling, did you test what was missing?
Fuel or ignition sparks?

If both are present, then you need to chack if the sparks are strong and fuel pressure is sufficient. Excessive fuel getting to the cylinders could result in flooding. Remove a spark plug and check if it is sooty.
Check for trouble codes stored in engine computer.

There are no trouble codes and I will check the plugs. Could the relay behind the glovebox be the problem?

We need to determine what is missing causing the non starting. It could be anything from ignition coil or sensors to engine computer.

Is the MIL indicating?

Check the coolant level and idle speed adjustment.
Check for vacuum leakages.

Check the Mass Air Flow.
Have the compression and valve clearances checked.

When it could not be started after stalling, does starting fluid works?

Did you try to retrieve for trouble codes?
