Many electronic devices/components are effected by temperature. Since the key is usually some place warm the culprit must be the cars receiver (usually at the key slot) There's not much you can do because any type of heater will drain the battery so fixing the pickup is the only option ... a long shot may be to spray some WD40 into the key slot because Older Jags used a resistor .. it may clean the pickup ,, worth trying because most repairs require getting inside the steering assembly if the key is located on the steering column
