I'm sorry the Tech you requested was unavailable to assist you today. It appears that Tech is currently "Offline". Now that his 15 minute "request lock" has expired, hopefully I can be of some assistance in his place...

From what you are describing here, it sounds like the problem is going to be in the Ambient Temp Sensor. The sensor is located at the front of the vehicle, behind hte upper grill (click here for an image). Carefully inspect the electrical connector and wire harness for any loose, broken or damaged wires. Inspect the sensor sand make sure the is no debris or build-up on the sensor. If hte visual inspections checks ok, replace the Ambient Temp Sensor.
