Question about 1998 Suzuki Swift
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?
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.
