Started our 1993 daf 45 when in gear by mislast week it was very Cold day ?

Hi by mistake we started our 1993 daf horsebox up, it was a very icy cold day. It went to start jolted forward a little and now won't start all the buzzer and lights come up but you turn last turn to start and dead. Any ideas? Thought might have jammed the starter motor?

I have had this symptom several times over the years on my saloon car(s) - the solution has always been to put the vehicle in gear and to rock it back and forwards - the teeth of the drive dog on the starter (bendix gear) have failed to engage with the flywheel and have just jammed up against it - rocking the vehicle in gear just moves the flywheel enough for the bendix gear to retract.

I have no experience with large vehicles - I just guess...

Good Luck...
