Gased a few times? Is it leaking? Doe's the compressor stay running? Did u use gauges when you gased it? If not then it probably has too much. Thats what i did one time. Then I got guage checked it. Let some run out while running. till it got to safe. worked better. But not as good as b4. And if its leaking, then its probably running out of freon and freezing up. It could be lots of things

You will need a repair shop,as I assume you know,
even if someone lists a few probable causes.

you should check if there is gas on the air system, if you say the compressor its engaged all time perhaps you have a gas leak or too much low pressure on the gas system, its recomended that this work is done by a pro, as it involves hazardous gases and delicate procedures.

When it gets cold the solenoid on the starter has a harder time pulling the plunger that is in side it but after enough trying the current going through it will warm it up enough to allow it to work and if the starter was tested when the engine had already been started that would not show suggestion to you is to replace the starter solenoid or the whole starter,depending on the mileage of your car[over 150000,change the starter].

Battery light on, takes forever to start then dies once started

if you can get the car started again and with someone helping you have them take the positive side of the battery cable off while it is running and if it dies then it is the alternator also check your drive belt and when was the last time it was changed because it could be slipping

Yes it does. Let the glow plugs warm up for 7-10 seconds (the light on the panel should go off) and then crank the engine. If the weather is cold, half an hour of running does not warm up the engine completely so you need to use the plugs for the first few startups during a cold day.
