Re: hard to start when cold
It is not good to use the remote start every time you start the car, this can cause some major damage to the starter, i suggest replacing the starter and then telling her to start the car manually unless absolutly needed to use the keypad.
remote start is made to use once daily in the morning, so your not gettitng in a cold car, not for eccesive use.

It is probably the "cold start" cycle. A Temperature sensor will send a signal to the computer in order to make the fuel charge rich and change the timing. This will last less than 3 minutes on many cars.
The process is similar to the old "choke" system adding a timing change to the rich fuel mix. Many cars have 2 Temperature sensors and for those you want to change the one that does NOT work the dash gauge or light. The sensor you want is dedicated to providing temperature info to the computer.
this is a battry problem you can charge the battery long a nuff to start after motor is running but you have a dead seal i would recommend wall mart best price and warrenty if you replace the battery with there 2 yr warrenty with-in the 2 yrs you will never hafe to but a nother battery for the life of the vehicle////// if this is not your problem i would say your coil pack is cracked
Oh come on now. Mardavis, assuming you have a fuel injection system, you have what is known as a cold start valve. It seves the same purpose as a choke. It is computer contoled and upon cranking the computer fires a small injector which gives the engine a rich shot of fuel. If the cold start valve, also know as the 5th injector, guess what, it won't start.
Now, if by some reason your nissian still has a carb, it is close toa cut off, then you have a choke problem. Meaning your linkage is sticking and your high step cam is not being set.
Just thought you might wanta know.
