Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I don't have reference for this code in the service information but if it's setting an ambient temperature sensor code with a known good sensor then there has to be a wiring or connection issue. You may have an open circuit, short to power or ground, high resistance due to internal wire corrosion, or there could be an issue with the connector terminals. Start by taking a close look at the connector terminals, if ok and there are no visible wiring issues then the wiring will need to be tested at the time the code is active.
