    Once temps dip below 30F I experience crank and no start symptoms, if you let the car set for about a .5 hour then go and start again, it starts up. Anybody else see this with their 2006 3.0L Fusion?

    A few times, after sitting overnight when cold, my 2006 3.0 V-6 Fusion won't start. I've tried the procedure for cold start in the owner's manual with no luck. After giving up and trying again 15 minutes later it started.

    My vehicle sat overnight Friday Night into Saturday Morning. Temperature was 30 at 7am. Car struggled to start the first time, had to let it sit for about 10 seconds, and then it started right up. It wasn't much of a issue last year, but now its starting to be more of an issue.

    When cold, sometimes it will not start. I typically wait a bit and then step on the gas 3 times and then try again and it starts.

    Dropped the car to a local dealership. Reprogramming PCM with new calibration following TSB 07-2-3- solved this issue. Now my Fusion start well at any temperature. Cost to me $75 (canadian) + tx.

    My 2006 also has the no start issue, mostly when cold, but has also had during the summer. I saw a post that said place foot on brake, turn key to on position and place vehicle in neutral. try to use your foot and roll vehicle just back a few inches, then try and start again. Weird but it worked. I have no idea what sensor this may be related to. But give it a try and see if it works for you. I have done it a number of times

    Have the dealer flash the computer and do a new install of the software. It is about $100.00 but will work. They will make you sign that you don't want them to diagnose it which is fine.mine starts great now.
