: I have a question about cold startswith N*??

My father has a 2005 SRX N*. He told me that when he starts his car when it is cold it will shake for about 3-4 secs then eventually die. He then makes a second attempt to start it with the pedal to the floor then vehicle will run just fine. he also says when he keeps the vehicle in the garage or it is in warm weather there are no issues. What do you guys think is the problem is? Hope the hear from you soon!!!!

Pedal to the floor is "clear flood mode" (shuts off the injectors). Leads me to think leaky injector or FPR, but the car is hardly old enough for that. Isn't it under warranty?

Yes it is. But I'm trying to give him a rough idea what the problem is so he can somewhat direct the tech to the problem

I would think that a description of the symptoms and results would lead the dealership tech to pull the DTC's and do some head-scratching. Warranty? Not your problem.
