Just had a cold snap with snow here in Alabama, tried to start the car during the second day the car initially started then sputtered out when I placed in gear to drive. Subsequent attempts to start have resulted in failure with the engine never turning over. I have replaced the battery and just had the 110k interval service, all within the past maonth and a half.

we have replaced fuel pump, which the garage said was the problem, but it won't stay started, or will but when shut off and turned back on right away, it won't start
Then el power system flashes the car will start after a while
