Cold weather engine cut out

Hello, im hoping someone here will be able to shed some light onto this. I have a 2005 Tdci 2.0 Titanium, cars runs great, starts first time every time, however i have noticed in the cold that when i start the engine and leave it to idle, it will cut out. The manual says when it is cold that i should press the clutch and turn the key to the second notch and wait for the coil light to go out before i start the engine. Problem is that the coil light goes out immediately, even when it's 0C outside. I've tried waiting anyway for a couple of minutes and i notice the coil light flashes back on really quickly, i tried starting the engine after this and one time it worked and didnt cut out afterwards and a second time this morning the engine did cut out so i dont know what to make of the coil light flashing back on again. Basically i have no indication as to when my car is ready to be started when it is cold. Any ideas as to why this maybe happening????
