	There are two outside temp sensors. One in front of the
condenser, second in the plenum chamber near evaporator housing. Seems
that one of them (or both) is fooling the computer. You may also want to
check the error codes in the cc computer. This is covered in Bentley,
but I have downloaded the code charts ( as far as I remember, from
ftp://ftp.metrics.com ). You can look for them at this address, or I can
send them to you. E-mail me privately if you like me to do that.
