A couple of probably unrelated items.
Why do I always leave things until it is the most difficult? I went out a couple of nights ago in a snow storm in the dark to get my truck ready to plug in the block heater. It was not that cold yet, but it was forecast and I wanted to plug it in. I had to reclaim the cords that had been requisitioned by the significant other for Christmas lights from under two feet of ice, plug in and string from the house, only to find that I had parked too close to the end of my storage shed and could not open the hood safety latch because I didn't know where the block heater cord cord is located. So now what, I want to plug the truck in so I could start it and can't reach the plug? I started and move the truck which kind of defeated the whole purpose for doing this, but fortunately it was not that cold, yet. (old fool)
Had trouble latching the hood and the truck would not start with the remote until i got it latched, and then this morning @ -20 C and plugged in for a hour the first remote start ran with a noise like the starter drive engaged and the truck shut off, on second try it started with starter drive noise for 20 seconds then disengaged and ran fine.
