driving along and without warning, no power. pulled in, won't start
Hello I haven't been here in a long while now, and had a pretty fine experience on the whole with my sexy beast... so I was well surprised to have to leave it on a country road in the middle of nowhere. Gonna have to tow it somewhere in the morning.
Anyway, like I said, it just suddenly had nothing under my right foot, and not sure if the engine had cut out by the time I'd pulled over, but it wouldn't start up again. Popped the hood and with the ignition on, there was a whiny electronic sound coming from the head, and when I actually turned the ignition, there was like a camera shutter sound coming from near my steering column withing the engine bay. Very near to where I was standing at the driver door, so I could hear it quite distinctly.
Anyone have any clue what might have happened, there's a local guy who's pretty good with electrical faults but he's very very slow to find cures, and always costs a lot because of that.
Oh, the red warning light on the clocks - I think the injector one, with the little spray picture, has popped on and off randomly over the last month. Is that why my car could have cut out like that?
