yea this must be the case for mine, i have to hold the foot brake in, put it in neutral, pull e-brake, turn car off, release brake, open door, and close driver door last in that order for it to arm the remote start lol

All I did was an oil change to Mobil 1 0w-20 and Michelin wipers (Steel framed).

It has already been down below 0F here and the Mobil 1 0w20 worked great on start up.

It's averaged -20 to -30 celcius (give or take) for the last 3 weeks or more. Man, I want a truck... kinda. Have to grab new wipers, the existing ones are starting to fail.

I go backwards for winter. Back to static dampers, stock hood back on, splitter off, drain water/meth system.

Well it was a PITA adding fluid back in.

I used one of these.

But I would suggest a longer tube. It would have made it much easier.

But the trans shifts amazing now. So much smoother!
