need to check for poor connection on battery/cables/starter/ignition switch

plus check battery condition and charge rate...may also be an internal fault in the starter motor itself

I have had this problem now again since new on my 2009 Fiesta. Ford replaced firstly the alternator and then the batteryunder warranty but it still happens sometimes. It has been a complete mystery. I have installed a digital voltmeter plugged into the accessory socket so that I can monitor the battery state. I watch this topic with interest !
