Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

I've read different articles about this same issue but figured I would add my problem. Drove the van in 35 degree weather, then sat for 5 days in below 15 degree temps. Ran fine up until I tried to start after sitting.
The van will crank all day but not fire, unless you spray starting fluid in the air boot.

Changed the distributor cap and rotor
-checked spark, and have spark

Changed fuel filter
-Checked fuel pressure, has about 63 psi and holds that pressure

Checked all the fuses with a multimeter, also pulled and reseated them.

Hooked up cheaper scan tool, no codes.

I'm thinking about key/security system?
-Did turn the key on and let set for 10 mins, nothing.
