Hey, Got my Qashqai and just found it little hard to start if its left for couple of days, or in the snow this weekend it takes few goes to start. Is this normal, its a diesel 1.5 dci pure drive? My last car started each time, no issues (Pug 308)

Second, for give me if its wrong place, but my my driver door seems to open and alarm goes off when its locked? All other doors are locked when I pull the handle. I have the normal key. I press the lock button on the key twice.

any ideas?

Wait for the glow plug light to go out then turn ignition off then on again & wait for light to go out again before trying to start  it if its really cold or been left a while in the cold. Light doesnt stay on very long in 1st place, you'd miss it if  you blinked. Must say we do this 1st start in the morning every day if  its particularly cold though most times we probably dont need to

very rarely, mainly last year in the extreme cold, but I generally give the glow plug extra time to warm up, comes from driving plant machinery when you had to hold in the manual glow plug heater button in for 30 secs or more  before it would start. A quick extra key turn on the QQ should do the trick, better to get into the habit rather than trying  to start & failing & starting over againBig smile

I find if I just try and start from straight away then engine will not start first thing.
I always get in car, turn on without starting, put my seat belt on and by then the 'OIL GOOD' has appeared and then it starts first time :)

Have you had the battery checked?

My year old 2.0dCi had a faulty battery from the factory. It was basically dead. On cold weather it did not start and I had to plug a battery charger to get it going.
