[DML] Re: Got the car started -disregard previous HELP message

If it took jumping the battery to get the car started that would mean
the voltage to the ignition was too low to get a good spark (assuming
the starter was cranking the motor over fast enough without jumping
the battery). This is not normal. There is a bad/dirty connection
somewhere between the battery and the ignition. I would start by
testing the battery and cleaning all of the big connections. I would
then check the voltage going to the ignition ECU. Don't forget to
check and clean ground connections. As for your hot-start, try the
plug swap to confirm low rest pressure. It "should" start right up.
