2016 Toyota Corolla Not Starting - Fuel Injector?

Have a Toyota Corolla 2016 sedan that didn't start this morning. B/G to this is that it's near its 3 year warranty (1 month left) and I hadn't driven it for 2 days straight and parked at a slight angle up in garage. Turned on the ignition this morning, it starts up then turns off, the engine oil and battery lights keep on. I shake the back of the car and then try it few times, once turns on for 1 sec then turns back off. After about 5 goes it then finally turned on completely.
Some plastic smoke smell came from the right side of the engine bay but that disappeared after i left the car running. I think it is the fuel line/injector maybe the car was running for 2 days and the fuel lines clogged up in the cold or something? (but it only got down to 10 degrees)
Wondering what your thoughts were?
And should i take it to the Toyota dealer to explain what happened (I video one of the startups as well)? Will they likely do anything given it is working? Is it better to notify them so if the same problem comes up after the warranty etc?
Forgot to add that this is a fleet car (was used by Thrifty for 6 months in i think its 1st year)- is that going to affect the warranty?
