get in car,put in card IMMEDIATELY press start (release, do not keep finger on button )DO NOT wait for heater plugs to go out ,
sit back and wait a few secs, car auto cranks engine and rumbles to life!

ps do it to a cold engine that has been stood ALL night cos i know mine starts instantly if its had a run and is warm for hours and hours later

I had my petrol Laguna for about a year before I found out you only had to press the stater button briefly and it would crank the engine until it started, I always kept it pressed until the engine started.

I only found out when some other forum member said his had stopped doing this.

Yep - if you press the button briefly and let go, the car takes over, it waits for plug preheat light to go out then cranks the engine.
I have only ever started the car this way, didn't realise you were "allowed" to keep the button pressed ( thought it may do some harm, a bit like keeping key turned in ignition once engine started) until engine started until I read on this forum that others were doing that!

I always did this whenI had mine - thought it was the "right" way to do it!

You can toggle the function, I think?

When the salesman took us for a drive he started it with just a momentary push of the button. I've always done the same ..... I suppose I thought he'd done it the "correct" way.
It does seem to bemuse people I have in the car :crazy: You know, you jump in, pop on the seatbelt, stick yer foot on the clutch and push the button & hey presto, a couple of seconds later it kicks into life. They always seem to take a double take when it starts. Very amusing :rofl:
I've let a few mates drive the bus and they ALWAYS hold the button till it starts :rolleyes:
