Espace becomes dead when key car left in and engine turned off for a few minutes
My Espace won't start if I turn the engine off but leave the keycard in the ignition (say with radio on) for more than a couple of minutes. I have had to jump start it 3 times so far including once on the Euro tunnel train!!
Is this some sort of electronic deadlock? Can anyone help? The car starts fine with jump leads and the battery is still charged. I replaced the battery the first time it happened assuming (wrongly) it was the culprit.
Currently in Richard Taylor-Worth's garage:
Espace 2.0 petrol, laguna 1.8 petrol
