Unusual Problem On 2008 Bantam. 1.3

Recommended Posts

Hi all, this is an unusual problem on my ford bantam. Every morning it is very difficult to start. When activating the starter the relay comes in for a split second then drops out. If I remove the relay and short out the contacts to the starter, the starter engages but the engine will not fire. I check for spark and the spark is present. The earth on the start relay is present for a short duration when operating the start on the key. After a while I fiddle around with all the connections in the engine compartment and low and behold the car starts and everything works fine? During the day I have no problems. I am suspecting that the PTM may be messing around? If anyone could advise me I would be very grateful.

Many Thanks,
