Post 2000 S-430 Wont Start When Cold

It is very strange, I have taken it to the dealer 3-times already but as soon as it gets cold it comes back. I have to switch the ignition switch On/Off for 30 to 40-mins before it will start and it only happens during fall and winter. Any ideas anyone? Hernan sends...
