As suggested load test the battery then get the coolant temperature sensor scanned to "See" just what the ECU is seeing.
It doesn't have to be bad enough to throw a fault code and the EML,
But the CTS reading always hot then in effect the "choke" won't be on then bad starting like you describe is going to happen.

I have an issue with an engine management light on my Ford Ka 2007 studio. Rattling sound when the car is idle and not in gear yet when clutch is put down with foot the noise stops. Checked water, oil and petrol cap and all seems fine. Anyone know what this could be?
