Hi, my name is ***** ***** can I help you?

Hi Tim, hope you're having an awesome day. I guess the JA bot cut off my text... So I've got an issue where the AC starts blowing hot. Noticed that when it starts blowing hot, the external temperature is very very low, like 20deg. And it slowly climbs to normal, and the AC gets going again. Sometimes the External temp stay low for awhile, and the AC blows hot... Also, recently the Blower fan has been staying on, no matter what we press, but I think I already found the solution to that.

Ok, the blower staying n, is the blower control module and is a common problem, but the a/c blowing hot will not be effected by this module, are you saying the inside temp is reading real low when the a/c blows hot?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Nope, it shows the outside/external temperature drop down to i think 20deg, then the external temp slowly climbs back up... and the AC comes back on.

ok, this is caused by a bad ambient air temp sensor, if it thinks its 20 degrees outside, it will not allow th compressor to come on, are you planning on fixing this your self?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I would like to fix it myself. Are you sure it's the sensor and not the whole computer?
Do you have a part number, and diagram on how to get at it?

Yes, its going to be the sensor, the sensor is located under the plastic shield on top of the radiator, you just remove the shield and unhook the sensor, it takes about 20 minutes, Tim
