    Anyone else ever have it stall after remote start?

    This has happened to me twice now this winter:

    Remote start; starts; surges; idle hunts for a short time; stalls.

    Then I can not remote start again.

    Here was the sequence today:

    Like above, then I get in and it starts fine. Let it run for maybe 10 seconds. Turn off. Then remote start again. It had a longer than normal crank time; started; surged again; rough idle for a short time, then was fine. Started fine the rest of the day (normal start - not remote).

    It could just be a cold start issue of course, because I tend to remote start more in the winter. Anything different about remote start from regular start in terms of the engine (wouldn't think so)?

    Scan tool says no codes stored. That seems weird to get no codes after a stall??

    The temp this morning was around 25 to 30 degrees. I have remote started while colder with no issues.

    I'm not taking it in unless it gets worse or sets a code. It would be pointless because they would have to keep it for a month and try it every day.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks.

    Carter's_sts, I can definitely understand your perspective, and please let me know if you do decide to involve your dealership at any point. I'm happy to contact them on your behalf and/or check my resources for any recalls that may be open on your STS-V. Send me an email anytime at Katie_Lucille@gmexpert.com for further assistance!

    I think it's a temperature thing. My dad and gf have aftermarket remote starts. And both have had it fail to start the car one of the last two mormings. It cranks and the heat blower, radio etc is on but it doesn't turn over.

    My car started both mornings without incident. Could be a weak battery? They become woefully inefficient in this type of cold.
