Vito 111 cdi ignition key won't turn when cold
When the temperature outside is below 3 degrees Celsius I can put my ignition key in but it will not turn. Using a heat gun to raise the temperature of the cab, after about 10 mins I can hear a small whirring sound for about 1 second similar to the sound of a small electric motor, after which the ignition key will turn, the dash lights up and the van will start.
I have done this at least 8 times so this is not a one off.
What could this be?
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
