cold weather no crank

New to this form, looking to see if I can find some answers, I have a 2011 6.7 with 125000. miles will not crank when the weather is -15 deg or colder. happened a couple of months ago took it in to dealer, said my starter was drawing way too many amps, about double. replaced the starter, worked good until weather got cold again. have the block heater plugged in, turn the key on until glow plugs shut off, turn the key to start position and nothing, no clicking, no cranking, nothing. turn the key back to off, then to the start position,again, multiple times usually, and eventually it fires right up like nothing at all is wrong. no codes, no nothing! any ideas on what the heck is going on. the dealer doesn't have any. and it's still cold here in Montana and North Dakota! starting to get frustrated...

cold weather no crank

yep batteries tested. Actually new and tested, could be something in the switch, but why only when it's -10 deg or colder? pretty darn confusing. dealer had it for over a week first time it started doing it, I told them to try starting it while it was still cold out. Of course they couldn't get to it until later in the week, when it had warmed up into the 20's! Just love the way dealers work! Did it wo days ago again, and today it was still as cold and cranked up like a dream. Really frustrates me, the newer electronics, and the way everything relies on something else to work properly. If you think of anything don't hesitate, I'm at the end of my rope!
