Wow, you may be just the guy to answer a question I have.
My truck has a history of hard starting when the temperature drops below about 50F and it hasn't been started in a day or so. It turns over briskly, so not a battery issue. I always hesitate for several seconds on a cold start to give the fuel pump time to pressurize.
A recent google search led me to try using a hair dryer to warm the ECU for a couple of minutes. I didn't believe it until I tried it...three times now...wouldn't start, break out the hair dryer for a few minutes and it starts right up. My guess is I need a new ECU.
Which ECU? The least I saw in the oldest model I worked on have a dozen or more of them - new cars exceed 70. Did you know that the eben the tow bar has one? I didn't.
You probably have to replace that ECU but take a look where it is placed to check the presence of moisture - that could very well change the impedance on some ground connections, causing all kinds of inconveniences. Is it a common problem of that model or just yours?
Temperature and humidity severely impacts on electronic hardware.

All of the really bad puns aside, It is the SALES to CUSTOMERS that pay the bills. Including your salary. You should really be complaining about the clown that came up with the whole "Ops" naming scheme.
I would put it to His Honour that those requiring Mr. Prick's services are probably no more capable of differentiating between a potted plant and a fashion crime than they are of differentiating between their arses and their elbows and respectfully suggest upon that basis that he find for the plaintiff.
