Hi gurus!
Do you know what can be the problem if car hard to start?
Usually I put my key, wait untill pre-heat symbol lamp goes down and then start my car. No problems, very easy and softly.
But today I was not able to start as usual. I turn my key and nothing happening. I can't hear nothing. No starter sound, no fuel pump sound just nothing. Ok, second attempt. This time starts, but very hard. I have to work with my starter for about 10 secs. It's not ok i think. I drove about 2 km. Switched off the car and then it was the same. Car starts but only when starter is working for about 10 secs. What can be the issue then?
My batteries are old I guess. Maybe 3 years old. What else can cause this problem? Ignition, starter, old batteries, wires that came to batteries? Thank you, Dmitrijs

Check the earth lead battery to battery tray then to engine.
They have a habit of breaking off where they bolt to the battery tray
If not start with your suggestions
Battery
Battery terminals
Starter motor
Does the glow plug light come on and go off as normal?
