Cold morn - not starting. Car was moved a few feet night before.
This is the second time its happened to my Suzuki Ignis. After starting the engine the night before and moving the car a few feet, on start up the following morning (in the cold) it struggles to start.
Why would this be so?
Would turning the ignition on, moving a few feet then switching off the night before affect the start-up the following morning?
Re: Cold morn - not starting. Car was moved a few feet...
OK, so starting the engine uses a lot of battery power, and the engine needs to be left running a while to recharge the battery.
When it is cold batterys don't hold as much charge (not quite the correct technical term, but I don't want to go into battery mechanics and chemistry here). You either need to pop it on a trickle charger or let it run for at least 15 minutes.

Saw your comment go in... Problem is...
"IGNIS" (I'm not getting as a USA model (little data here))...
but what I am looking at seems to be RIGHT-HAND DRIVES...
Which would EXPLAIN why I was seeing the PS tank behind the
RHD (drivers side headlight...
I responded there (Jurily Hawrylak's answer) as well... (if equipped) the power steering PUMP... should be quite obvious near the TOP of your serpentine belt (at least on the diagrams I am pulling up).
- Find the blue filler cap ... near the BRIGHT YELLOW dip stick handle...
At that same level... move your hand in a small circle... FEELING for a BLACK PLASTIC cap.... that says POWER STEERING fluid
Go to Bing homepage But just for A thought... there is such a thing as an ELECTRIC POWER STEERING on a IGNIS: (worth saying)
SUZUKI IGNIS 1.3 EPS ELECTRIC POWER STEERING COLUMN + ECU KOYO Q1T18172M
hot soak failure. all fails of this type are caused by only 3 things (4?) 1: lost electrical power to the EFI system, (kills spark/fueling) 2: lost spark. 3: lost fuel or too much called flooding
even a bad engine. some engines lose compression hot. the tests have not changed since 1920 , tin lizzy days. same deal. 3 tests. ill not rattle through them here, its in everybook published on topic and on every car repair forum , in the world.

I have a 2001 Suzuki Ignis and I have a similar problem. When I start the engine 5 beeps are heard and the hazard lights turn off and on with each beep. Also after I have been driving for about 45 mins 3 beeps are heard and the hazard lights turn off and on again. However my engine does not stop running. I have asked people about it and they think that it has something to do with a lose wire in the security system? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
