I was driving today and the car just died. No power - nothing. I pulled over to the side of the road (not easy when you have little to no steering or brakes) and turned off the car.
After a little bit I tried to start it again, it turned over a little bit (2 or 3 groans) but stopped again. I left the acc on to see if the stereo worked. The lights were on but no display. The stacker started counting the disks - like it does when it has been disconnectedfrom power - but it didn't stop, it just kept on checking the disks over and over.
I flicked the key over to ING and on the dash the battery light and ABS light was on but nothing else. The climate control display had a little 'X' showing instead of the temp etc. After about 5 mins of think WTF it could be. I tried to start it again and it worked! No warning lights or anything.
Does anyone know what could have caused this? I'd rather it not happen again, especially when driving to work surrounded by other cars.
