Hi all, 2005 accord 2.4 auto exec tourer, electric lift tailgate, in warm weather off key fob - tailgate works perfectly ! in cold weather opens up  fine off key fob button - raises to fully open, beeps then closes again ???? I gather from this that the lifting mechanics/hydraulics are fine - I have seen on the "lings honda" website there is listed a "ambient sensor" I presume this is some kind of temperature sensor ? which is mounted above the roof lining near the rear roof of the car according to the parts list -  it has been like this for around 2 years or so - its about time I got round to fixing it !! Warm weather = perfect -- Cold weather = Faulty !!

Any help or advice very much appreciated ! Thanks in advance

I suppose it is to avoid damage in colder weather but not sure how it works to do this....ambient temperature sensor readings....and why?

Sorry, doesn't help much in resolving your issue but got me wondering and will see if I can find out further info
