Twice within that last week my Artic Start AR800 has failed to start. It has only occurred when the truck sat outside all day with temps between 30-40 degrees. Truck is a '14 with 43k miles and original battery. Remote start was installed by a local shop over a year ago.

When the remote start is activated the truck makes all the usual start up noises and then the engine cranks but does not start. The starter sounds strong and steady.

After the first time this happened I got in and used the key. The engine cranked but did not start. On the third attempt the truck started. I have had no issues using the key before.

The second time the issue occurred the truck started after I activated the remote start a second time.

I checked the battery this morning in the garage with a multimeter. I got between 12.3-12.4 volts. During start up the volts dipped in the 9 range.

Does this sound like an issue with the ignition bypass failing or possibly a battery issue at start up?
