2002 wrx
bugeye EJ205 [email protected]

Default 2002 wrx wont start when cold...not battery issue.

I tried searching, but found nothing, maybe i don't know the proper terms...

Anyway, when my car is colder than -22 F or -30 C, the car wont start for about 5-10 minutes. I turn the key, and the car is completely dead. no dash lights or anything....after 5-10 minutes, it seems to jump to life, and starts no problem.

Do these cars have immobilizer problems when cold? Anything I can check?

there is a flashing red light on the left side of the dash that flashes, maybe that has something to do with it?
