Turboprop Engine not starting in cold weather

I'm working on a turboprop aircraft, and I'm encountering an issue in which the engine does not start if ambient temperature is below -5 Fahrenheit (NG is stuck at 16).


As soon as the temperature is increased over -5 Fahrenheit, the engine starts normally.


Any clue what may be the issue?

The Grand Caravan starts at -40C. So I suggest using this engine.cfg and testing and once working then slowly update until you figure out what setting is causing the issue.
