Hi,

I had some weird behavior today, and actually last year in similar weather. My car was parked outside for 3 day without driving and the temp yesterday went down to minus 22 celcius and when I started the car I got a oil temp light, electronic throttle and start stop disabled...followed by a check engine light. I didnt worry too much since it happened last year as well. I then parked indoors for the day , started the car up after work...same check engine light minus the etc and oil temp light . I then drove back home. Stopped the car , restarted ..same check engine. But then I remote started the car...lights came on but car didnt start. The error on the dash was something along the lines of " remote start disabled , start engine to reset...?'...I started using the push button and it got rid of the check engine light.
Had this happened to anyone?

Assuming from your handle the car is a MY17, combined with the cold weather, I'd wager a weak battery is culprit.

There’s also the usual requirement for a few start/stop cycles to drop a set CEL sometimes.

Does your car have an engine block heater (mine does), and were you within the owner's manual's parameters for its use?

There's a lot of cars that seek to be experiencing cold start misfire issues that will throw all those faults. There's a service bulletin out from Alfa with a software flash to address it. Maybe swing by the dealership to see if it applies to your car.
