If you are are talking about temperature sensor it is in the air intake and they just use that input as it is already needed by the engine computer to balance the fuel intake.

The outside sensor does not display the outdoor temerture

This is posted in cars & trucks but it doesn't sound like you are talking about a vehicle. Sounds like an indoor/outdoor weather station. These can have a limited range. Only suggestion I have is some have a channel selector - try a different frequency, there may be interferance.

Won't idle in cold weather

The problem you describe could be result of a few different things: 1) Check your Idle Air Control (IAC) sensor/motor. This sensor is located on your vehicles, throttle body. The purpose of this sensor is to control the car's idle under various operating conditions including ambient temperature. In order for it to function correctly, the internal components must be clean (meaning, little or no carbon build up) and it must be undamaged. Sometimes the IAC can be cleaned; however, if this cleaning procedure is not properly done, the IAC can become damaged. This sensor is also sometimes called the "Cold Start" sensor. A new IAC will cost $50-$100. 2) Check you Coolant Temperature sensor. This sensor is located on the top of your engine and is screwed into your intake manifold. When this fails your car will experience starting problems when cold outside. A new Coolant Temp sensor will cost about $100. Take a look at these two solutions first. My guess is your IAC needs to be cleaned or replaced. Good Luck!

Please remember to rate this solution. Thanks!

1998 chevy S 10 won't start in cold weather. starts just fine when around 25 degrees or so. looking into cold start valve and thermo time switch, but don't know location of either, or how to check.

a coolant temp sensor will cause this problem if it is reading warmer than it is outside this will give lean condition .the sensor is located by the t-stat follow upper radiator hose down to housing.the sensor has two wires. thanks for your question.

Runs back in cold weather

The most likely problem with your van, assuming that there is no check engine light being lit is that the small motor on the air intake manifold has stopped working . this will cause the motor to run badly when it is at idle forcing you to keep the gas pedal depressed to keep it running smoothly. This motor usually has only 2 screws securing it to the manifold so it is an easy fix.

Good luck!
