Having the same issue now, generally happens colder than -4. Was going to get them to look at it, not sure if there is a fix but should get the conversation started.

Was -17 here the other day. I had the engine block heater plugged in and in the morning went to remote start it. Cranked once and started but then died soon after. Put on my shoes and went outside and it started right up. The remote start is great in anything over 10 degrees but really worthless under that.

I've had no issue from -10F and up(no block heater)...maybe there is some benefit to my winter additive...without testing there is no proof to that statement though.
