Ambient temperature switch telling the computer its a either super cold out or way too hot causing the starting issue. This can be checked with a good scan tool with live feed data. Just a thought.....[thankyou]
Never thought of that...easy check would be looking at the ambient temp readout on the dash or center screen. Should be running like donkey butt if it did run though and set a CEL.

Temp seems to be reading fine. I think car reads the iat sensor post filter for the engine however.
