1998 Volkswagen Passat 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles
I had a new battery installed in my VW Passat yesterday because it died twice times in the past few months. Today, the engine turned off while I was making a turn, and the battery light and the check engine light came on. After several tries, I was able to get it started. The check engine and battery lights are no longer on, and my mechanic can't find anything.
I'm nervous to drive my car again. I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that I used the remote clicker for automatic start, which I do in cold weather. And then I put the key in the ignition after it's warmed up and I drive it away.
