Have 2014 E250 BT with 32,000 miles...original owner...great…

Customer Question
Hi. Have 2014...

Hi. Have 2014 E250 BT with 32,000 miles...original owner...great vehicle. Within past month or so (cold weather in east coast mid-Atlantic states) have been having intermittent starting problem. Almost always on first start of the day, but doen't always happen. Garaged.

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Turn key to position two...wait for "coil" yellow light to go out and advance to position three. completely dead most times, other times it will stutter then nothing then stutter then nothing. If I turn off and turn back on it starts fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your E250 yourself? What have you tried so far?

NO...always use dealer, but warranty is up in a month so would like to get this resolved. Vehicle in dealer now...they say they can't replicate the problem!!!!
