i think glow plug replacement needed. ever used starting fluid in cold to start?try this, next time no start, cycle your key and let the light come on, wait till it goes off, turn key again until light goes off, if you have to do this more than 3 times, and it runs fine, replace the glow plugs only then. thank you for choosing fixya.com!
had this before and i have always ended up rewiring the control unit feed ,i tried every which way to find the fault and then i gave up blaming the fancy computer controlled software .I just ran a feed to the unit from the ignition switch to turn it on when ignition is turned on in extreme cases i have fitted a push button type switch on the dash ignition controlled that operates the relay for the glow plugs direct .
You didn't say how you got round this problem when it happened - did you keep on trying or go away and come back later? I'm thinking you may have an immobiliser issue with the ignition key not being read correctly by the detector coil in the steering column. Did you use the same key on both occasions, and did you open the car remotely or manually?
