The TCM on the 9-5 Aero is located behind the glove compartment.
Remove the under panel on the passenger side, and look up behind the glove compartment - the TCM is clipped onto the bulkhead.
Please remember to dicobbect the battery BEFORE removing the module.
Total time to replace the module - 10 mins!
Good luck

Cold Starting Problems? Consider this before expensive dealership bills!

Almost all vehicles nowadays are equipped with an engine coolant temperature sensor. They are in place to tell the vehicle's computer (PCM) what the temperature of the engine is at any time. In a lot of cases, it acts like an electronic carburetor choke.

For instance, when the temperature outside is 32 degrees F and the car has been sitting outside long enough to cool down to that temperature, the temp reflected from the coolant temp sensor SHOULD be telling the computer, "Its 32 degrees here inside the engine so dump extra fuel so it can start!" (Kind of like a closed choke on carbureted engines, only no moving parts except for the fuel injectors."

But what if that's not what the coolant temp sensor is reading? What if it thinks the temperature is 200 degrees F inside that 32 degree engine? In this case, it will report to the computer that the engine is already warmed up and minimal fuel will be required to start the vehicle. Hence, a hard or no-start!

A mis-calibrated (worn out) coolant temperature sensor can also cause a lot of driveability issues as well. For instance, if this had been the opposite scenario...The engine is actually 200 degrees F but the sensor thinks it's 32 degrees, this will cause the engine to run extremely rich, throw a light on the dash, and most likely stall out.

In my opinion, the coolant temperature sensor is arguably one of the most important sensors on your vehicle. If it's checked and/or changed regularly (I would change it about every 50,000 miles or so) this will be one of much forgotten steps in providing good fuel economy and good driveability...Not to mention good cold starts when the weather outside is frightful!

The good news about replacing this handy little guy? Two things. Inexpensive and easy to replace! The coolant temperature sensor can be purchased at most (if not all) auto parts stores (depending on your make and model regarding immediate availability.) For example, on a '98 Chrysler Sebring, Auto Zone has the sensors available for $25.99.

You can usually locate your coolant temperature sensor on or near the thermostat housing. (Again, vehicle make and model will vary in some cases regarding location.) It will usually have 2 wires leading to it. If you see a sensor with only one wire, you've found the coolant sending unit for your coolant gauge.

I hope this tip has helped you and I wish you another year of safe driving and good driveability!

Went through car wash and outside temperature reading 82 degree farenheit - it's 110 outside here in Phoenix, AZ

This part is most likely in front of the a/c condenser/ radiator or right behind the grille. There really is no way to protect it from getting wet as it will get wet when it rains anyways, however the high pressure of the car wash jets could have messed the sensor up.

2002 Ford explorer outside temperature reading is wrong. Changed temperature sensor between grill and radiator but still wrong temperature reading on dash. Reads 10 degrees too low all the time and it does...

This may be a wiring issue as the sensor is electronic in nature. Any loose wiring may cause the voltage across the sensor to differ resulting in an inaccurate reading.

My outdoor air temp. reads -56 degrees when starting car, real air temp is 80, it keeps the a/c from turning on.

Hello, this is usually caused by a bad outside air temp sensor. the sensor is mounted behind the front grill, it has one connector with two wires pluged into it.
here is a picture of the sensor

1999 pontiac grand prix gt dual climate control not working prope

The sensor is located near the hood latch area in front of the radiator. If the temp is reading incorrectly, chances are it is defective. You can purchase a new one, they relativly inexpensive.
Disconnect the electrical connector then remove the sensor.
Good luck, let me know.

Misreading outside temperature sensor on 2001 Audi A4

There are four sensors for ambient tempurature and they work in unison to provide information to the temp reading on the dash, the heater control head ( where to direct air, blending of warm/cold/outside/inside air flapper controls) depending on the ambient temp and the inside air temp sensor located just above the radio as well as the sun sensor on the top of the dash as well as the a/c compressor head.

When you start your car, the body control module takes the readings from all sensors, outside air temp located in front of the radiator, air temp sensor located in the airbox ( senses temp of air being drawn in from the outside into the air box), coolant temp, inside air temp sensor and the sun sensor on top of the dash (this is why it takes a few seconds for the climate control system to begine when you start the car). The intake air sensor is 1st priority, inside air second, coolant third, ambient 4th and sun 5th. For instance, if the sun sensor reads the sun is hot but the interior sensor reads cold, the inside akes priority. The goal is for the system to achieve a tempurature inside the car that matches the selected temp. It uses all of the sensors to set the system up to achieve that goal as quickly as possible.

Example; Its mid afternoon, sunny and 40 degrees outside adn your in stop and go traffic. The intake sensor reads 40 degrees, the outside sensor reads 60 degrees (heat from radiator...engine heat protrudes into cabin) and the sun sensor reads high (sun is strong). The system is set for 72. priority one sensor reads 40, inside sensor reads 65, ambient reads 60= system will blow hot air to the floor out put, dash outlets will lightly flow 65 degree air so the sun doesnt roast you yet your feet are cold(if it blew hot air from all outlets, your upper body would be hot but your legs/feet would be cold). as the interior sensor reaches desired temp, air will be distrubuted through thee dash, defrost and floor with the warmest air coming out the floor and defrost, coolest air out the dash vents. Its a complex system!

The two sensors that will screw the system up the most are the intake and interior sensors. the system will function reasonably well with just those two sensors though it wont blend air temps between outlets if the sun sensor isnt working. If the outside sensor fails, it simply uses the intake sensor, if the intake sensor fails it will rely on the front sensor. However, since the intake takes priority over the outside sensor, if the intake sensor sends incorrect resistance info rather than failing, it will take priority and cause the unit to malfunction such as in your case.

The intake air sensor can be changed from the outside with patience. If it where me, I would pay the two hrs labor and let the dealer do it right.
