I had this once before, I just locked the car walked around for 30 mins and when I came back it started. (This was more than a year ago)

I get the feeling maybe its the starter motor solanoid sticking, but some advice on how easy it is on the Laguna to access would be nice. I can see the starter motor but not the solinoid.

Also other possibilities (wiring to start button? etc)

thanks for any help that is given.
There are two safety interlocks on the car to prevent it from starting when the car is in gear and the clutch is not depressed.

If it happens again try to start the car with the clutch depressed. If it starts then this indicates a faulty switch on the gearbox (i.e. it thinks it is in gear when it isn't)

Not sure where this switch is located but I have a feeling that it may be the same as the one that detects reverse gear. Do your reverse lights work OK?
