Light's came on due to your alternator is defective, it's not putting out voltage any more and will have to be replace, the reason it started later, is your battery recharge itself, engine will only run till battery get low on voltage again, have the charging system check out, hope this was very helpful.

1997 VW BUG , THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM IS GOING WHACKO. ONE SECOND , IT'S FINE , STARTS , RUNS , THEN AFTER I SHUT IT OFF , IT DOESNT WANT TO START , ACTS LIKE A DEAD BATT. , BUT IT HAS 12V , ALT. TESTED GOOD...


Could this be mechanical. Get an AMP probe with the clamp-on ring for DC currents. Take an AMP reading on the Positive battery cable while starting. If the reading is higher during **** starts then the starter is under to much load, as-in maybe water in a piston or something like that. If the AMP reading is less than normal, then the bendix or solenoid is not making a good connection or bad battery cable. If power is not getting to the starter the current will be low. If the starter is OK and it is an engine problem, then the current will be high, like a locked rotor. Could also be a bad starter bearing when it gets warm. Good Luck
