That sounds like a loose connection and as soon as you demand more power for the starter which demands a lot, the connection fails causing the light to go out.

Begin by checking the battery terminal ends. Try to twist either by hand. If you can twist either it is too loose, tighten it up, then if they are tight move onto checking the ground first and then move onto checking the positive cable that feeds the starter and/or the fuse block, etc.

If it's that cold, you might not want to check any further that the battery terminals, the ground and what you can reach, until it either warms up, you can get that into a heated garage or have it in a shop that is warm, but if you want to continue, I would need to know the model and engine in order to look up wiring diagrams if it's not already what I mentioned.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.

TOM WHITTAKERUSA
