Laguna 1 mk2. No power- Fault or feature?
Out of sheer clumsiness I tried to start my car whith 2nd gear selected and the handbrake pulled.
Nedless to say the engine stalled instantly with a rather violent jump - but for reasons still unknown to me I couldn't start the car again. All power had simply gone including interior lights, headlights, blower, radio etc. I popped the bonnet but couldn't really see anything wrong. I tried wiggling the battery cables to see if they had rattled loose, but they were ok. A minute later I had another go at starting and now the car came to life instantly.
Could it be some kind of safety feature that had cut the power temporarily?
Or should I go hunting for a loose conection somewhere? I would hate the same to happen while driving or parked somewhere far away from home.
