[color=#000000][font=Verdana, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][size=2]I have a 54 plate Fusion 1.4 tdci. When the outside tempreture is below zero the starter motor [/size][/font][/color][color=#000000][font=Verdana, Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif][size=2]will only turn over for about one second then stop, it will do this for up to five or six times then it will start fine. Usually once it has started, I dont tend to get any other problems for the rest of the day.[/size][/font][/color]

I've had a service on it with oil and filters change, including the glow plugs, but still get the problem in sub 0 conditions. Usually when it is cold enough for the ignition coil flashes on for a second is when I get the problem. If its warm or above freezing its fine.

Any ideas???
Could be the glow plug relay... or the loom going to the glowplugs itself. I've seen cold start issues on TDCi's because of a melted loom before..
When the starter motor turns over for a second and stops, does it start clicking?
thinking dud battery?
good shout...
