    I have the same issue with my '04 F150. Discovered this morning (9 degrees F outside) that if I take the cover off the fuse panel and use my wifes hair dryer just for 2 seconds it starts right up. I think it is either a relay switch or a dirty fuse making a bad connection. MD in KS

When I first start the vhhicle up in the morning

Souds like your getting too much fuel at a cold start. Possibly a bad fuel pressure regulator.

My 95 xj6 would not start in cold weather. Towed to jaguar dealer and they diagnosed it as a battery problem. Changed battery started for three weeks. It is cold again motor turns over but does not start.

your suppression module is dead and need to changed. It blocks the alternator from charging the battery, so basically you are running on battery for more
