Information center only works when warm outside, if cold does not
My information center does not work when it is cold outside. If the car sits in the sun all day when I turn on the ignition it works. This would be great to know what direction I am going and how many miles to e all the time.
This has been goin on for a year, I think it may be electrical or fuse related as since it has to do with the temperature outside

Just got an answer from Chevy Dealer. When you replaced the battery it loses its memory as to where the door actuators were (the flaps that control the heat and A/C).
The fix: Turn everything off and let the car sit overnight. The computer should reset itself during its learnings process. In the morning turn on the ignition and let the car run for a few minutes before turning on the climate control.
If this doesn't work, plan on 1-1.5hours of labor for a technician to reset the actuators at the dealership.
Based on the information that you have provided me, my attention is now centered on the ECT Sensor (Engine Coolant Temperature). This sensor provides information to the ECM to richen the fuel mixture on start up and also to lean out the mixture as the engine warms up. Very similar to the old fashioned choke in operation. A cold engine requires additional fuel to start, while a warm one does not. This matches your situation of a cold start versus a re-start and also explains why you are having to cycle the start sequence several times to fire the engine. Those cycles are finally providing enough fuel for start up.
Check with a local auto parts outlet to see about having the ECM read for a memory code related to the ECT. Most of the stores will now do this testing for free.
