This is Caused By the Grease in the Spindle Bearings Getting frozen. Get it Greased up really Well and you Might need to Repack the Bearings on this side to Stop this and Stop further Damage to the Spindle.

SOURCE: check engine light comes on when outside temp is

Take it buy Auto Zone when the light is on and get them to check the code for you. I don't know why it would do it while cold and not hot.

SOURCE: My 2003 Rendezvous heater blows

It may just be the way the car works. I have a 2005 Altima and it does the same thing, but just doesn't blow really warm air. Try putting the air on recirculating, that may help a little. If it's still REALLY cold when you are stopped, I would check/replace the thermostat first. If you want to check the thermostat to see if it's working yourself, just remove it, and inspect it while it is cold, then put it in a pot of boiling water for 3 mins, inspect it, if the valve has opened it is okay, if it looks the same (aka valve was open to begin with) it may just be staying open and it should be replaced.

I have a 2006 audi a4 3.0 when temperature outside drops below 40 degrees it will not start ,when the temperature outside gets around 45 degrees it starts and runs with no problem . screen reads ok


I assume from the question that the engine is cranking over but will not start. Hence there is no issue with the starter motor on a very cold start.

At 40 degrees F you are getting closer to freezing. When this happens again I would check the operation of the fuel pump.
Take the fuel cap off the fuel tank and have someone switch the ignition on and off a few times. (just the ignition - don't start the engine up). Turn it on for 10 seconds or so and then off. If you listen at the fuel filler opening with the cap off you will be able to hear if the fuel pump starts and stops. If it is working it should start and then stop a few seconds later each time you switch on the ignition because the computer shuts it down in a few seconds if the engine is not started.

If the fuel pump is operating I would be looking for some electrical gremlins. You would need to check that the fuel injectors are getting power and that the spark plugs are also.

Ideally you would need to a quality scan tool connected to the car when you have this very cold no start condition whilst trying to start the car to see what faults may be present because it should pick up some malfunction if the start problem goes away when the temp rises a few degrees over 40F.

When the air temp. is cold motor cuts out and backfires at 55-60mph


Check intake air temperature sensor or MAF sensor. Also check MAP sensor and replace if necessary.

Cold weather starting problem


I would say it's bad contacts in the ignition switch. Metals change dimensions depending on temperature, looks like 45 degrees is the trick point for whatever is in there. My 04 Silverado 5.3 with 196,000 has the ticking, but it is gone within 10-15 seconds.

04 Hyundia Sonata LX, engine performance drains with AC running


dear friend-you are correct when you say it can be a tempreture switch that might be at fault.your air con take a lot of torque away from your engine when kicking in so you need something to compensate and restore the torque.a sensor is added into the system to do exacly that and works of a signal coming from the temp switch.that unit is normally mounted on the fire wall.

On the interior roof warning lights there are two lights that keep coming on(orange and red) that look like snow flakes. What sre these warning lights for?


These are outside temp. warning lights. The Yellow light goes on when the outside temp. dips to 40 degrees to let you know that there is a possibility of frost. The Red light goes on when outside temp. dips to 30 degrees suggesting a possibility of icy conditions.

Jetta 2003 2l fault code p2182


P2181 Cooling system performance

Check Thermostat operation & Temp sensor for ECU. CHECK ENGINE CCOLANT TEMP SENSOR IN WATERHOSE, NORMALY A 4 PIN PLUG. ON SENSOR SELF PIN 1&3 OR C&D AT 0 degrees
5000-6500 ohms,60 degrees 530-675 ohms,90 degrees
200-275 degrees

Could also be the cooling fans - I've heard of fixing it by replacing the fan motor and clearing the code as well. The easy fix seems to be the coolant sensor though - I've seen several online threads where owners cleared this code by changing that sensor.
