    yWh statey .Maybe someone can help me here car has always started no problem but lately in the cold it just does not want to start I have plenty of power in the battery but it takes about 10 kranks to Go once it's started you can turn it off it's starts straight back up I was thinking it was a fuel pump or something but I noticed when I turn the ignition on and just let it sit without starting the little battery icon stays on whenever all the other lights go off . Could this be my battery ? Like I said it's got heaps of turn out of power and it's charging app the normal rate when I put the voltmeter on to check it . I'm going to change leads plugs this weekend and maybe a fuel filter?. It's got me rooted . I'm sorry to bother you guys we're such a small thin. Cheers in advance

    Sounds like fuel pump to me. Check your filter first.

    Battery light on is normal when the key is in the run position and the car isn't running.
    Can you hear the fuel pump priming when you turn the key on?

    try turning to reds for 5 seconds
    then turn off
    then turn to reds for another 5 seconds
    then start engine
