My wife's car has a remote starter, (after market). It works as it should in the summer, but in the winter when it gets cold it doesn't want to work. Which of course that's when one needs it to work the most. Anyone have any ideas?

Has she tried to 'reconnect' it to the car, so to speak? On mine, I press the lock and unlock buttons a few times until my car's lights flash. That re establishes the connection. I found this out she I called the place that installed mine.

I see my reply was removed. I did not post this to advertise anyone or any business. I did the post to try and help the person with a problem find some where to get an answer to the problem. Then FL1 wonders why the forums are going to pot.

Spanky, I know what you mean. It seems that some stuff gets moved and others don't. It must be who ever is working that day or what kind of mood their in. But thanks for trying...

Our old car had an aftermarket remote start in it. In the cold weather, it wouldn't start the car. If memory serves me correctly, we had to take it back to the place that installed it to adjust the timing on it so that it would extend the time needed to turn the ignition to get the car started. The car was cold blooded and it took longer to get the car to start when it was cold out. Once they increased the length of time it turned the starting sequence, it worked fine in the cold weather.
