2009 GL 320 starter! Need help!


I own a 2009 GL 320 bluetec with 90,000km on it. The car is dealer maintained and is a pleasure to drive. I live in a city where the temperatures can fall below -30. My question is that, why doesn't the car start when the key is turned even after letting the glow plugs heat?

I start the car, it tries to turn then I have to turn the key back to normal position and pull it out of the ignition. Then when I keep the key in start position it fires 3 times till it starts on the 4th one!

The dealership changed the battery and fixed some connection issues, but the problem still persists. Regardless of -30, the car behaves in the same manner even when it is -10 out.

Does anyone know about this?

Can you clarify the "fires three times, starts on the fourth try" statement?
