Default Remote starter quits in cold weather

On mornings when its exceptionaly cold I and I try to use the remote starter , the truck will turn over and start for about a second and then shut off and will not restart until I put the key in and turn it over. Was wondering if anyone else has had this issue and possibly found a fix through the dealership. The number one time I want to use the remote is when its really cold , so it seems silly that it wont work right in the cold

All I have noticed is the remote start range is less when it's really cold, was 3 degrees this morning, but it always starts. Maybe the dealer can help...

Were there any messages on the EVIC when it failed? Low fuel or one of the microswitches (hood) not properly contacting?

Have you checked the fuel level? If it's too low, the truck will start and then shut off...the nanny doesn't want you running out of fuel while it's sitting there idling.

Mine wont start at all when it is too low on fuel.
Mine doesnt always work either...sometimes I have to press lock-unlock then start..weird, but so far works right down to -42

If it was a door or hood it would not turn over at all, Ive had that happen before. No check engine light, not low on fuel. It turns over, starts for a second then dies when I go out and put the key in , it starts and stays running and nothing on the evic. Only time its happen is the last two mornings -20 deg, happen to me and my dad ( he has a truck the same year as mine) so its not an individual issue with just my truck

i had a similar problem in my 05 if it was too cold or i had the heater fan up too high it was drawing too much current and wouldn't start. it was an after market unit that my buddy 's shop installed he just lengthened the amount of time that the the starter would run
