Im just worried about what just happened. I was out at a restaurant for about an hour and a half and I came back from eating and got into my car. I turned the key in POS 2 and let the fuel pump prime, and I saw that the temp needle at 1/3 away from the cold area. Then I began to start the car, the car cranked for about 3 seconds and woulding start, but I immediately stopped turning the key. I noticed that my battery light was flashing red but the car wasnt dead and after that happened I tried to take my key out but it wouldnt come out of POS 1. After getting it out I started it up and it started perfectly and drove normaly. Im a little worried about what just happened, anyone wanna give some input?

do you have SES light? If so, scan the codes and let us know
don't forget to check battery voltage, when the engine's off/on. Should be getting 13-14v when engine's running, 12v when it's off.
