Just been walking over the Malverns and had my 04 2.2 direct parked facing uphill. when we started the car it was spluttering and cut out. sat for a few seconds then turned ignition on waited for few seconds and then started perfectly. however the drive home from Malvern to Worcester we had the battery light on for the 15 mile journey. No difference to revs no issue to power steering in fact car was perfect. had the car sat for an hour on the flat now and starting perfectly with NO battery light. had the bonnet up and listened to engine running no whining from bearings on alternator just a slight hissing noise which I put down to air inlet. Never listened to engine when switching off before either is it normal to sound like a computer for couple of seconds?
