Angry Power draw

I recently had to install a Manitoba Public Insurance Corp. immobilizer because of their theft reduction campaign. I already have a compustar P1WSH-S remote starter & Counteract CT-2 rust prevention system. The alternator is a stock 95-130A Ford 3G series & the battery is a 590CCA Exide. On some cold days I haven't been able to start the truck. The battery was good for about 2 sec. of crank and then the ominous click, click click.... What gives?
