A fresh and full battery has an effect on modern cars' operations.
My 2001 Magna VR-X developed this problem upon starting.
It would switch off just after starting up; not unlike a cold old carbureted engine.
Very annoying and incomprehensible as it was fuel injected.

After asking many questions of many expert, Dr Terry (of Bebco Automotive fame) told me to buy a new battery.
And that fixed the problem.
Apparently the car needs a full charge to run properly and an old battery was not good enough.
