Hi guys,
Just had an issue that I've not had before.

I'd just pulled upto a set of traffic lights, and heard a 'click' from the car, and the car had died and I hadn't realised.

The headlights were still on - and I don't think it stalled. I didn't even know it had happened.

I was able to restart the engine and drive off as normal.

Anyone had this before?

Never experienced that before except with a car many years ago that would not idle very well if I put the choke in to soon.

Did not warning lights or messages come on when it happened. I presume you declutched you before stopping which should rule out stalling. Did the rev counter drop to an abnormally low reading as you stopped.

It may be just a gremlin if it only happened once.

No warning lights or error messages.

Maybe it was just the idle had gone too low and cut out - like I said I didn't notice for a few second.

Only drove a couple of minutes longer then I was at home - not used it since.
I'm back out shortly - so I'll see how it goes.

The only time that's happened to me is when I messed around with my air intake. No warning at all, I went to pull away and just rolled forward. I would check your intake and try and repeat whatever you did last time to see if it's a regular fault. Harsh braking is what did it to me

I've had this issue. Engine cutting out while stopped at junction and while driving along, pretty scary. And engine start button not working. Problem started after having a new ECU/Multiplex fitted. Took it back to the dealers, they plugged it into the computer and no fault found. Didn't happen again. I suspect something was not plugged back in properly or something loose.
