problem #1

Feb 182010


  • 11,000 miles
1) was making a right turn into a parking lot. There was a slight incline. There was a quarter of a tank of gas in the car. 2) the engine appeared to turn off, however the electronics never turned off. Power steering was no longer available once the engine stopped running. 3) I attempted to restart the car, but it wouldn't start. You could hear the engine trying to start. I placed the car in neutral and pushed it into a parking space. About 5 minutes later I successfully restarted the car. I had the car towed to the dealership and they could not diagnose the problem or detect that anything had occurred.
