156 JTD Problem on Engine Startup - Electrics shut off once key is on START
i do have a strange problem...
every once in a while my car will lose Power (Electricity) when the key get's turned to START.
After that it takes about 1-2 minutes and Power returnes again... if i try to start now it usually starts...but sometimes it's loosing electric's again.
During that Problem the engine won't turn over - it's as if someone is disconecting the battery - everything will go flat and nothing will work for the the time said. (1-2minutes)
Without that Problem the engine will turn over with no problems and the engine will start at first chance - running without any problem.
I checked the Battery, it's on 12.6 Volt - the car is long distance driver.
Fuses all checked - non faulty
First thing that came to my mind was the ignition relais but i crosschanged that with the one of the Radiator Fan (Identical) and the problem remains.
I think it could be a problem with the ignition switch but i'm a little unshure...so i'm asking if anyone had this problem and could think of something else i might should check first.
