Sorry to leave you hanging. Been out for a week fighting a kidney stone.
Are you saying you do have spark for a minute, and if so I assume the engine runs during that time? If that's right, check the voltage on the positive terminal of the ignition coil after the engine stalls and won't restart. You will see 12 volts for just one second after turning on the ignition switch. What's important is it must come back during engine cranking. If it does not come back you won't have spark or injector pulses and the fuel pump won't continue running. The common causes of that are a failed crankshaft position sensor and a camshaft position sensor. Check the diagnostic fault codes to see if there is one related to either sensor. Either one can fail by becoming heat-sensitive and will work again when it cools down, but that applies more to the crank sensor.
