Hello everyone,

My truck 2014 chu613 with mp8 engine has cold starting problem.

When i turn the key on in the morning after truck has been sitting off for whole night at first my tail lights and backup lights will blink 5 to 6 time . Then my dashboard will flicker 3to4 times before it comes on. Then when i try to start the truck nothing happens .when i check engine hours there nothing there. I had to cycle key on and off many times to get it to start. It does start thou. But when truck gets to operating temprature it does not have this problem it start right away no problems at all. It is deleted truck.

I think ecu is not getting power or EPDM has a problem.

Any sugestions

So i got my truck checked.

The intake air heater was bad got it replaced and tech put ome more power cable direct from battery. So far truck start fine but it has not been very cold. I will see how much diffrence repairs make and post it. 

If any one is having the same problem just disconect the ground wire from intake airheater and check.

Thanks everyone
