Hi Pizza,
Sounds like a faulty diode in the alternator. If you can get your hands on a multimeter, start the vehicle and check the voltage at the battery terminals. It should read between 13.2 - 14.2 volts DC. If not, the alternator is at fault and will need to be replaced.
Cheers,

Why does my 2004 (Land cruiser) PRADO 3000 Turbo Diesel 5sp- have issues starting when it's cold? It turns over and over does nothing, then when it starts, I get a big plume of smoke, then it idles rough...


glow plugs are activated if look on the dash when you turn the ignition just before cranking and you should see a light that stays on for several seconds then goes out and then you should crank the engine ! sometimes when its really cold or the glow plugs are worn try turning the ignition on and off each time light goes out 2 or 3 times to get more heat on the plugs then start ! if this doesnt work then glow plus and system needs checking !

Run the fault codes to check sensor problems . Check that the variable vanes on the turbo are operational. check that the vacuum hose to the actuator is not hard and cracked. have the tips of the injectors replaced.

Why won't my 99 beetle idle when its cold ?


If it's petrol it should idle about 800rpm and if it'd diesel it should idle around 900rpm so below 1000 i't normal when warm. When cold is should be around 1100rpm.

Rover 420 diesel battery keeps going flat


looks like you have something draining the battery (something electrical staying on) disconnect your battery negative terminal and connect a test light between the battery post and the wire clamp if the light comes on you have battery drain (make sure interior light is out when testing) you now need to go through all elctrical systems to trace the reason why ( check boot light goes out first this was a favorite cause)
