The pre-ignition rely/coil that sends the spark to the glow plugs fail to activate some times but it is totally random. Is there some way to activate it manually and/or reset it so it will work normally? Seem that if you can get the car started [in warm weather] then the rely starts working again by itself. But car won't start in cold weather without it!!! Help Please email address email@example.com

Maybe loose fuse for that circuit. Open fuse box and clean and wiggle fuse and it's connectors. also check for loose wires and or connectors in that circuit.
