It is unlikely that the ambient temp sensor would cause this problem. Check your coolant level. Low coolant will cause inefficient operation of the heating system because the heater core has little or nothing flowing through it so no heat gets transferred to the passenger compartment. Does your heater work normally at higher engine speeds?
