I have what i suspect to be the dreaded cim problem on my 2003 2.2dti. Its exibiting all the usual symptoms i.e. dial droppping out and electricals shutting down in various places/times/stages. However, when i plug it in, the only recuring fault code i get is that of the ambient temperature sensor, nothing along the lines of can bus interface etc.. which i was expecting. Its also interesting to note that it seems to only missbehave when cold, i.e. by the time im out of town and onto the motorway the car behaves itself. Am i clutching at straws here or could there be something in this temperature issue? Is it worth getting to the cim and cleaning the plugs/contacts/repositioning it to try and negate any issues which have come from it sitting in the same place too long? Any advice would be much appreciated.
P.S. sorry if these questions have been posted before but i cant search for CIM as it says word too small/too many results!
