SOURCE: Engine miss when ambient air temp increases not water/engine temp

there is an ambient temp. sensor in the intake air ducting, if its a small round two wire plug you can unplug it and the computer will think its -40C. You will set a code when you do this, but should go away after you plug it back in.
Depending on the engine you could have a cracked mainshaft in your distributor which is quite common, unfortunately most cracks are on the underside of the shaft which requires removing the distributor.

There's a feed from the engine coolant temperature sensor into the AC controller as if the controller thinks the engine is overheating it'll shut down the AC to reduce the load on the cooling system

Try unplugging the cooling sensor on the engine ( follow the radiator top hose back to the engine as the sensor is close to this) and see if this replicates the problem, if it does then you know thats the issue.so the coolant temperature sensor needs to be replaced.

--------------
Also the possibility is faulty evaporator temp sensor.It may be sending a false signal to the climate control module that the evap is around freezing temperature thus shutting down the compressor. The evaporator temp sensor is located on the evaporator housing, in the a/c system, and monitors the temp to prevent the evaporator from freezing up. If the AC control module sees the temp going too low, it will send a communication message to the pcm to turn off the a/c compressor until the evap temp returns to an acceptable range. The other possibility is the high pressure switch located on the line in the right hand side whell arch. Why I mentioned the high pressure switch because as the temp increases the pressure in the system increases and if the ECU sees this signal from that pressure switch in the wheel well on the a/c line it will shut down the compressor. You can test this with a digital voltmeter or install a set of gauges to the high and low side service ports and see where the pressure go. It also may be the temp sensor element on the compressor itself. ----------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

I WANT TO KNOW WHERE THE OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE SENSOR ON MY 2011 CHEVY CRUZE IS LOCATED. I WANT TO REPLACE IT BECAUSE THE DASH GAGE STAYS AT 64 DEGREES.


The ambient temp sensor is usually located somewhere in front of the radiator or behind the front bumper. You'll see a small device, clipped to a nearby metal part of the body with wires attached.

Before replacing the sensor, try improving a possible poor connection by disconnecting and reconnecting the sensor a few times. I've experienced this on my '98 Astro, and the temp displayed correctly after cleaning up the connection.

Happy Motoring!

How do I find the fuse on an impala 2002 for the.outside temperature and compass


There are two fuses one in the right I/P junction block an one in the left I/P junction block ! The right is marked DK / RKE 10amp fuse. The left is marked A/C / CRUSE 10amp fuse ! I don't think these are the problem ! These fuses supply power to the microprocessor in the driver information center . According to my service information the microprocessor supply's power to the ambient air temperature sensor an to the compass.
This mode displays an 8 point compass heading on the left hand side of the DIC. The compass will display the current vehicle direction relative to one of 8 compass headings using N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, and NW for the readout. The ambient temperature displays on the right hand side of the DIC. If the ambient temperature is below 3?°C (37?°F), the temperature reading will toggle between displaying the outside temperature and the word ICE for two minutes. If the temperature is less than minus 40?°F for more than 2 seconds, OC will display. If the temperature is above 140?°F for more than 2 seconds, SC will be displayed. If OC or SC is displayed DTC's will be set. For compass calibration and compass magnetic variation adjustment refer to Electronic Compass Calibration .

Locate the ambient light sensor


Automatic Headlamps- Vehicles with the automatic headlamps option are equipped with a unique headlamp switch that includes an A (Automatic) position and have a sun load sensor located on the top of the instrument panel to sense ambient light levels. When the A position of the headlamp switch is selected while the engine is running, the headlamps are turned ON and OFF automatically as ambient light levels dictate.
