I think you're on to something, because they've been working flawlessly in the 20's-30's. I had issues in single digits.
It only took us five winters to finally figure out that the touch sensor on the doors stops working in extreme cold. I haven't nailed down the point, but we recently had some weather that stayed below -10C (14F) for a few days and it just wouldn't work and had to use the key fob.
It generally stays above -5C (23F) and the doors work fine.
Oddly, it seems that it is the unlocking that is the main problem at cold temperatures as it seems to lock fine when that cold.
