Have ur battery checked out first.If that is ok,then its your starter motor brushes worn.Solution change the starter motor.When the engine is warm its easyer to crank over because all the moving parts get warm and expand making it easyer to start when warm.Hope that was helpfull goodluck

2003 dodge ram 4.7 will not start when cold out fires then starter kicks out


When you say starter kicks out, does that mean that it will not even turn over anymore than once? Have you tried spraying quick start at all?

Starter problems


It's diesel. Diesel engines do not like cold, but that is normal. I am going to assume this engine has a start delay in cold weather to allow for Glow Plugs to warm up the cylinders before actually turning over the engine. I don't know about TDI's specifically, but I think a TDI Mech at your local Volkswagen dealer could confirm my assumption. They may call the parts something different, but the function will be the same. Sounds like normal operation for a diesel engine in cold weather...obviously, this would be why the engine always turns over immediately in warm weather...no need for the Glow Plugs to warm the cylinders. Best of luck resolving this problem.

Turned key 2 start car, it did not click, fire, or make any sound, but headlights,dashlights,& open door beeps all work.


Since you have power it is likely not a battery problem.
The selonoid on the starter may have gone bad if there is no click sound when the key is turned.

In some cases the selonoid can be replaced seperate from the starter, but often it requires replacing the entire starter assembly.

You may also wish to check the voltage at the starter to make sure it is not a wireing problem.

Starters are not overly difficult to replace on your own if you are handy with some tools and have time to spend underneath the vehicle. Often it is only held in place with 2 bolts and 2 wires.

There is often little to zero warning when the solenoid goes bad.

Everything is fine, but then without warning, i turn ignition key and everything blacks out


Sounds like a loose connection. Check all battery and starter connections for clean and tight connections.

Trouble starting


I would check the connections to the battery, then take it to an auto parts store or auto service center to test the condition of the battery and to test the starter. If the battery is good then the starter could be going bad if the starter takes too much amperage when cranking the engine and doesn't turn at a normal rate of speed.

2006 Hyundai Tiburon Question!


I live in Northern Ontario and I use my Tiburon as my 'winter beater'. Despite all of the problems with the car, mine starts reasonably well in very cold weather.

Getting your battery checked was a good start. The next step is to check your starter motor:

If the starter motor is failing, then it will just 'click' and not try to start the engine at all. Then, after a few attempts, the starter will suddenly work and start the engine just like normal. If this is the case, then get your starter replaced.

Hi, I have a Nissan Altima 95. Had a starter problem. I live in colder climate region of Alberta, canada. I purchased a used starter from a parts seller in Texas. I replaced the starter in July of 2009....


Yes continious cranking of an engine puts a big strain on a starter in any weather, but almost certainly in cold, it takes a lot of amps to turn an engine, It maybe the fuel is starting to freeze?, Maybe it's an electrical issue such as points, plugs timing, distributor cap, rotor arm inside the cap, maybe it's just settings

1992 GMC Sierra Won't turn over


You either need to charge the battery, or you've got a bad battery. It's easy to power lights and radios, but turning an engine over, especially in cold weather, takes a lot of cold cranking amps (in other words, a fully charged and good battery.).

F350 super duty,engine cuts out without warning


Check to see if your truck was recalled for a faulty cam shaft sensor. Some sensors develop hair line cracks which allow contaminants to get in and the sensor becomes intermittent. The symptoms can include sudden shutdown of the engine so a recall was issued.
