    Code 1310 Ambient Air Temperature Sensor Failure

    Hi All,
    I have a code 1310 Ambient Air Temperature Sensor Failure so I replaced the Ambient Air Temperature Sensor today and the error is still showing up and no outside temp. I know it may just be the wires but would like to know if anyone has any suggestions.

    Thanks,
    James

    What brand sensor did you use? Inspect the wiring for damage. There should be a way to test the circuit in the FSM.

    Dumb question - the temp sensor on the front hood latch bracket or the IAT (part of the MAF) ?

    The sensor on the front hood latch, sorry for my ignorance but I have no idea what IAT or MAF stand for. I an not sure of the brand I got it at Auto zone and it look identical to the one I removed.

    Thanks for your responses,
    James

    Those rarely go bad and even a cheap replacement should work. I would check the wiring.

    When in doubt, see the ACRONYM Sticky.

    I wouldn't trust any AutoZone Don'tLast part.

    ==================
    I an not sure of the brand
    I got it at Auto zone
    and it look identical to the one I removed.

    NEVER buy ANY house-brand parts from AutoZone -
    this includes their DURALAST parts - we call DONTLAST -

    also stay away from "STANDARD" brand electrical parts -
    their quality seems to have dropped off -

    I have a code 1310 Ambient Air Temperature Sensor Failure
    there is always a letter before the 4-digits in a code -
    it is important to give us the entire code -

    B1310 - Ambient Air Temperature Sensor Failure

    return the part you bought - and get a genuine ACDelco part -
