    Hi, wonder if someone can help?

    The other day I was driving home and got to a roundabout. Looked at my dashboard and the ABS light, the brake warning light and warning triangle light came on. The engine was still running and I continued a bit further when the airbag light came on, the next thing the radio cut off, had no headlights or side lights, the indicator was not working but the the light on dashboard was flashing but the relay was not ticking and the engine stopped. I was now just rolling down a slip road, I put it into second gear and then all the lights on the dashboard went out, the engine jumped started and was able to drive home.

    Has anyone else experienced this or does anyone know what could be wrong?

    Thanks in advance.

    Kevin
