This can happen in the winter if hot air is blowing from the vents. If charging stops, remove the phone from the cradle until the interior of the car has warmed up.
When the car is warm the amount of air and the lower temperature of the air will allow charging to restart. Replace you phone and it will start charging.
When using the wireless charging car kit, why does my phone start charging after stopping at a red light?
Some newer cars have a gas saving system called Stop/Start where the ignition is stopped when the brake pedal is pressed and restarts once it is released.
