SOMETHING WEIRD!

Hey Guys,

Came across a really weird problem.

Was parked onj a hill, facing down, facing oncoming traffic (was waiting for the mrs)

The engine was off and keys in the ignition, i was sitting reading my copy of scooby mag, when suddenlely "BANG"!

A car had smaked my wing mirror at about 80mph, in a 30.

It only scrathed the mirror thoguh, so wasnt to bad.

Tried to start my car 2 mins later, and it wouldnt start. the engine was turing but nothing would happen. I left it for 5 mins, then it started ok but ran rough for about 2mins on idel (as if it was going to cut out)


Anyone come across this before?
Im wondering if the mirror getting knocked would have caused the i im imobilier kicking in or something thinking the car was being broken into.

Or would this have happend if the mirror was knovked or not?

could it have been a fuel problem as i was parked on a hill?

I was on my way out shopping, but was afraid that the car would not start again in the middle of asda carpark, so i just went straight home.
