Remote start issues
The remote start only works when the vehicle has been warmed up. This happened with my 06 Charger SRT8 as well. That was 5 years ago and I forget what the fix was lol.
This morning i attempted to start it with the remote ( tried both fobs) no go.
I had to start it with the key fob. After the Ram warmed started fine with the remote. Anyone else have any issues?

You can only use the command start twice in between actually putting the key in and turning it to the run position. After the key is turned off you can command start twice then you need to put the key in. Here an insert from page 28 of your owners manual:

The engine can be started two consecutive times (two
15-minute cycles) with the RKE transmitter. However,
the ignition switch must be cycled to the ON/RUN
position before you can repeat the start sequence for a

third cycle.

Maybe this is the problem???

By jingles!!! I think you nailed it. the night before I had the " issue" I did start it 2 times and shut it down. I just tried it this morning and it fired right up.

Thanks...I'm not sure it I ever would have figured that one
