Try by eliminating the low oil switch by disconnecting the bullet connector from the low oil switch(yellow, as I recall) and check for spark. If you have spark, it may be that the low temp is affecting the oil viscosity sufficiently to cause problems with the low oil switch. Just an initial thought.
