The car is plugged in all night ..roughly 9 hours...when i lift the hood to unplug the CTS the engine is hot, really hot. If it does start after many minutes of cranking it, the vents blow warm air. Ive tried the cycling of glow plugs, but doesnt make a difference. I just went out and started it, unplugged for 5 hours in -20, and it started right up. Glow plugs came on for 3-4 secs and high idle kicked in. It also starts great whenever i shut it off for a minute or 2 so normal warm starts are excellent. As a sidenote..my 2004 Jetta TDI did the exact same thing until i parked it for good.
