Default 2005 S4 does not crank when its cold

Hello Everyone,

Ive got a 2005 S4 4.2L that wonít start when it gets below five degrees. It makes a few buzzing sounds under the hood but will not crank. Iíve got full battery power and the battery terminals are clean and tight. If itís not too cold, after a few turns of the key, twenty turns or so, it will crank. Once itís been started it will have no problem for the rest of the day to crank again after being shut off. Until it sits over night and then itís back to being an ignorant you know what. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Hereís a video where you can clearly hear the buzzing sound.
