hi,i had the exact same problem,and after many frustrating months ,i found out that by changing the speed sensor relay(located on the gearbox),solved all the problems.6 months have passed and still no troubles.when the motor heats up yhe contacts in the relay expand and dont make contact,thats why if you wait a short time and it cools down a bit it starts.i hope it works for you also.

hi Fred, kind of sounds like you have a sticking, or contaminted idle valve. when it is 40-45F outside, a sticking or contaminated valve will cause the fuel mixture to be to rich. as the temp warms, the mixture requirement is not as rich. a quick check is to hold the gas pedal to the floor for 5-10 seconds when cranking cold and then let up. if it seems like it wants to start, the valve is faulty.

dos your car crank, if it does check fuel pressure
if does have fuel pressure check spark most likely your coil or ignition module but if doesnt crank check to see if you get signal to your remote starter with a test light
