Today I used my starter and let it run for 10 mon before I drove to work and the transmission acted fine. 9 degrees. Maybe when I take it in for service ill ask the tech if he thinks I should change my tranny fluid. But warming it up longer worked.

I only recently added the remote start to mine. I have typically always tried to allow it to run at least 5-10 minutes prior to driving when the temperature is below freezing though. On the occasions that it didn't have time to warm up I noticed that if it was slow to shift until it warmed up. My 2010 was the same way. My guess is the transmission fluid gets thick and is slow to move through the valve bodies until it gets warm and thins out some.

I recently installed my own and really like it. It is the Python 574 remote start/security with a 2 way remote. The really cool thing about the 2 way remote is that it shows you I the truck is running and how much time is left to run, door lock status, if alarm is activated, etc and its really not too big to carry on your key chain.

DIY I have about $300 in it and its probably the second best available (Best is the same unit but remote has a color LCD screen). That includes buying a butane soldering iron, extra wire, zip ties, black tape, shrink tubing, etc. (About $250 in Remote start + Bypass). It was a big project but it was the first time I had ever even soldered a wire and mine came out great.

If you're paying a dealer to install it is really expensive. DIY it was about $100 more than a basic unit.

That remote start is pretty cool. Does it stay running when you unlock the doors?

Yep. You can also put it in pit stop mode and get out and leave it running without the key in it.

Our lives have become a stressful hurry hurry way. Get up 5 mins earlier and let it warm up. It only costs $5 minutes $0 dollars.

Python 574 on eBay- $170.55 w/shipping

FLCAN bypass- $56.90 w/shipping

That's the same seller I bought mine from. The bypass has to be programmed and that seller will program it for you.
