Did you have the radio on?  Did it make a "pop" or "snap" noise?  Was the
A/C on or the car climate control on either Auto, Defrost or Bi-Level?  You

There's an A/C magnetic clutch problem that gives your ECU the equivalent
of a brain shock treatment.  On my 200q20v, it resulted in a violent
shudder and the noise in the radio if the radio was on.
