Re: Electrical nightmare!!
My new (1000 miles) 1.9 JTD does the same intermittently but for only 30 seconds; book says it's a fault!
It's booked in this week with my friendly dealer (never used before so the word "friendly" may change) and I'll keep you posted. The technician says that it could be the control box for the plugs (there is one plug per cylinder, but he needs to "plug" it in to discover what is wrong.
He also said it was OK to drive and did it start OK - that's never been a problem.
Hope that helps.
