Hello Tim:

I can think of a simple mechanism for _some_ cases.

The witness, especially in 'missing time' cases, is himself the
one who restarts the engine!

In a state of fear and confusion, he simply doesn't remember.
What he recalls after regaining his senses, it that the motor
conked out in the first place.

Going much further out on a limb, the UFO - or its occupant, if
any - starts the car in a failed attempt to cover up the
incident, trying to make things seem less abnormal and

If that's asking too much, at least it's less extravagant than
time warps etc.
