I am starting to have similar things happen. And it does not happen only when cold, but even after it sits even a few minutes. And I always do plug in on nights below 32*
I turn the key as normal, do my seat belt, look and the wait light is out (at this point not sure if it even came on). I turn the key and it turns over normally but will not start. Then turn key off, and back on, wait for the light to go off, and it will start fine.
It appears that the wait to start light is not coming on sometimes. And I have had this happen even after a couple key turns once before.
I am concerned that this might be a cam postion sensor but how could it have anything to do with the wait to start light?
Next, I am on my original batteries and thought this might possibly be a sign of them failing. However when I do turn it over, they are very strong and show no signs of being weak.
Could some type of internal battery short have anything to do with the wait to start light? Is the wait to start light on only when the glow plugs are warming up? Then why does the enigne turn over normally but not start?
Would anything like this show up as codes?
Thanks for any ideas,
