yes...under voltage condition exists to the ignition relay or fuel pump relay...operational relays do not like the cold temps and the battery had better be NEW because the tin/antimony alloy batteries (NO LEAD ANYMORE) will stop taking a charge ten percent per year...five is old especially in hard service in a cold climate~....NEW BATTERY...clean 1/0 battery/chassis connection with a wirebrush...mmmmmok?~
