Only #2 Diesel gels. You would be hard pressed freezing gasoline and if you did your battery would probably not have the power to start your vehicle anyway. Sooooo thats not a problem.
When you bump the key, does starter at least try to turn over? Or do you just get the clicking of the relay for the starter? Seems to me you may have a relay issue. (Im going to sound like a real big idiot if these dont have relayed starters, my thoughts are telling me they do)
Is your PASS key still enabled? Is the PASS key light lit up when you try to start the car the first time? Does it stay lit up? I have had this happen to me a couple times and it wont do anything until it resets. Let the timer go out for the PASS system and voila! She cranks right over. The only thing that doesnt add up here is that it still takes you 2 or 3 times to start the car after the PASS resets. Complex, interesting issue we have here really!
Let me know if the PASS key light is staying on after it doesnt start.
94 RMSB 170K Sat 5 years, ran for 1 of those then remained untouched for 4. Sat because it was slapped by a deer and the owners didnt want to fix it for whatever reason.
Mods, all the free good ones.
Future? Probably pull engine, reseal it, and run it a lot more. Looking to get 250k out of it. PRAYING for 300k.
