    93 sts starter

    Hi
    I have a 93 sts with a 4.6 north* and I live in Canada.
    Sometimes with the wind chill temp is getting down to minus 35.
    My problem is when the temp is below about minus 5 the caddy will not start, as in the starter motor does not even turn.When the temp goes up again it starts no problem, is there a relay somewhere that may sticking?

    Thanx for any help

    There is a 'starter enable relay' under the trim and carpet...about forward area...of the lower drivers door side trim. Very hard relay to find in warm weather! Its inside the harness plastic protector.

    Geezz....I dont miss that cooolld weather!
