Remote Car Starter AstroStart Model 803

I have a Remote Car Starter,AstroStart Model 803. My car is a 2003 Ford Tarus. It has been working good for five years. This winter on especially colds mornings it will not work. After driving and heating up, it work very good. I took it back to the shop,and they sold me another fob. Same thing still happens. I would appreciate any suggestions,on what the cause of this problem is. Thank You

Does the engine turn over and not start, or does it not turn over??

Sorry, not familiar with remote starters, but with it being affected by temperature I would be looking for either a relay or ecu (electronic control unit/computer) of some type that is malfunctioning. I am thinking it would either be in the passenger compartment, or under the hood.
