Hi Jay,

Just reading this thread as my D3 has a similar problem - basically it takes about 7 seconds of cranking after its been switched off a while to start.

Did the new battery cure the problem?

Thanks
Adrian

Hi Adrian,

It seemed to cure it for a bit, but normal (occasional) poor cranking performance has now returned!

Thanks for following up on this, because it has prompted me to provide update for this thread for others, which I will try and do in more detail within the next 48 hrs.

Basically however, it seems as though this problem isn't as simple as a under par battery.

Spend so far £115

Mine is booked in for this coming Friday. Others have agreed it will be an injector fault so I am hoping its just one (at £250 each)!! I'll post an update once its fixed.
