I had a problem with the phaser sensor but this has been rectified(hopefully) but could this be the problem.
My Laguna did this.

One morning it just didn't start, so I had it recovered to my local dealership who diagnosed a knackered alternator. They replaced this and sent me on my way (warranty, thank God!) but they still found a "drain" and tried to blame it on all manner of things. Turns out the battery was shot and was internally discharging.

Currently in Benny's garage:
