My daughter's 53 Focus Zetec 1.6 doesn't start when the weather gets cold. We haven't got any figures of how cold, and it's not every time. It doesn't turn over when the fault happens. All dash lights come on and don't dim, but there's not clicking, as if the battery is low. Any ideas, please?

Sounds like a duff battery, get it load checked by an auto electrician

Thanks for all the advice. I'll check it out. maybe a while, as the car is not with me for another two weeks.
