Yes it does it runs fine and I drove 6 miles earlier. Ive just checked it again and it went through same scenario. Ive just noticed something weird though. Once I turn off ignition and engine shuts down there is a strange noise that lasts for about 5 seconds or so. Its hard to explain but sounds like a flapping or twisting rubber sound.Ive tried a few times and the lingering noise is always present on shutdown. Any ideas ?

Have something to contribute?

what is happening is the car is left for a while the battery sort of self charges & will have enough charge in it to start up but will soon fail as it drains as the engine is running off the battery.
if the dash warning light is still on then its your alt that needs checking.

go get the alt checked properly and i am sure you will find it's had it's day as your car is doing exactly what my sons car was doing.
