Eureka! It cranked like crazy on the next attempt.

Technology is so kewl!

Another happy customer!
Not sure holding the start button without the motor cranking would be a good idea. High current would be flowing through the starter brushes and most likely shortening the life of your starter.

I'll be doing some cold weather testing as soon as the snow melts off the roads.
