Cold weather makes the engine hard to start for two main reasons. First, oil thickens when it's cold, which increases friction and makes it harder for the staner motor to spin the engine. ... You can ensure that your car will start in the worst weather by keeping the engine or the battery, or both, warm.

97 Chrysler.cirrus starts runs good,when you shut it off it won restart unless it sets for about an hour. Head lights,over head light, Windows ,dash light all work ,but it won't crank over.


Starter motors and solenoids often sieze when hot towards the end of their service life. You may need to replace the starter. How many times will it start in a row Without running it long enough to heat up. If it will start four or five times cold then fail after warming up and the alternator is charging the battery at 13.5- 15 volts you got a bad starter.

I have had the same remote starter in my car for 8 years. It worked perfectly before but now if it is starting cold, it immediately stalls. The starter attempts 3 times and it starts then immediately


Have you had a battery test done? Sounds like a weak battery or dirty and loose battery connections. The cold weather doesn't help because it makes your engine oil thicker.

Dies when I first start have to restart a few times and dies at stop light unless it gets a little gas


This is usually a problem caused by a bad water temperature sensor. There are usually 2 sensors with one working the temperature gauge and the second working engine controls.

The "cold start" sequence is similar to a choke in old cars. It needs the signal from the water sensor to trigger the cold start sequence. The cold start sequence enriches the fuel charge, adjusts timing, and increases idle speed until the engine gets a little warm.

Now if stalling when warm, you have other issues. Manifold runners are a problem on some engines.

2002 envoy, have to turn ignition key on and off 3 or 4 times before it will engage starter


The remote and key are two different things. When turning the key, you are searching for a good contact in the ignition switch. Cold weather just makes it worse to get a contact. Replace the ignition switch. The remote start. If it is after market. Take it out. Repair the wires. Soon it will die and won't let you start your vehicle. Then you will pay someone like me, that works at a shop, to tear it out and charge you $200 to do it. I just did one. A two minute fix, because I know. and a $200 bill. I got paid $1.5 to do it.

Camry 2002 Remote Starter Conflicts Car Starter


You need to call Viper and talk to their tech support. It sounds like the viper is actually disabling the starter. If you have all of your paperwork from the alarm system there should be a book that can help walk you through the reprogramming mode. Maybe your key fob is not synced to the alarm system. I have a clifford alarm which is still a viper. I have to press the star button 3 times in a row if I want my car to start remotely. hope this helps some.

The engine has a hard time turning over when the engine is cold but if i drive it around the block and turn it off and start it back up 5 times in a row it has no problem when the engine is warmed up. I...


you may have a bad,or going bad starter. when you attempt to start it cold,does it turn over real slow? this can be 2 different issues. either a bad or weak battery,or starter dragging. simple to diagnose. take you car to auto zone or advance auto parts and have them check your battery for free 1st. if it checks good,then go towards a bad starter. the starter can drag,or turn really slow when it's going bad. almost like a drained battery. but after the engines warm,it turns over just fine. narror your search by ruling out a bad battery by having the battery checked for free 1st. then move towards replacing the starter. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Dear,
Check if the remote Battery is genuine (I mean full) other wise maybe it's a relay issue or timer issue in the module itself (which you installed).
