I have a very old car which uses mechanical transmission (Maruti Zen)
Recently while driving on the road, I switched off the engine because of heavy still traffic. I forgot to turn off the head lights while doing that and this happened for around 1 min.
After that, when I tried to start the car again, it won't start at all. I waited for around 30 mins outside the car and when I again tried to start the car after 30 mins, it started to my surprise !!
My question is it seemed like a battery drain issue, but how did it start after 30 mins, if the battery got drained.
P.S: The car had stalled on an earlier ocassion, but that time, it started after someone pushed the car, while I put it in 2nd gear (and pressing/depressing the clutch pedal)
