Default Peugeot 207 struggling to start!!!

I have a 2011 Peugeot 2011 that is struggling to start. I had this problem a year ago,it miraculously disappeared and is now back. I turn the key and it takes three plus attempts to turn over and I can hear a slight clicking noise. I have to put my foot on the accelerator and rev to prevent the engine from cutting out. When the car is warm it runs/starts no problem.

I had a service last week and the mechanic ran a diagnostic test on it and it showed no faults. I have had the battery and alternator tested, all in good order. The only other thing to mention is the thermostat shows warm when just starting the car- not sure if related?

Any suggestions would be helpful, my children are worried each morning if they are going to make it to school!

Sounds like a faulty temperature sensor. If the temperature gauge is showing warm when the engine is cold then not enough fuel will be supplied to the engine to cold start it.

You need to have the battery load tested and check that the alternator is charging properly. Also remove/clean/replace the ground connections between the battery-body-engine.
These vehicles need a good battery to start and run properly, any low voltage/bad ground connections etc will cause the issues you are having.
The temp gauge reading may be pointing to a bad ground connection, so make sure these are all cleaned up.
