Just went to start up my car after work yesterday and something weird happened. I put in the key and turned it, then the engine started to turn but before it turned over the car went ZAP, and all power died. I lifted up the hood to check fuses, wires, anything unusual. ( I have already replaced the coil and wires a year ago, as well as a rebuilt alternator and a new volt regulator.) Got back in the car and it started, no problem.

Just worried that this is a sign that something serious is about to go. Any ideas ? I would prefer to change something now than break down on the highway later.

No matter what you fix, there will always be something else to fix..
"Warranty" is just another way of postponing the inevitable.
