Great way to think outside the normal box and save the day.  Looks like it came out great!

Just curious, but was it real cold that morning?  Sensor might have been "out of range" and not defective.  If it's a loose sensor, take a cup of hot water and dip it to warm it up and try again.  If it's fixed and not "dipable", try a blow dryer to warm it up.  Same for the control box. I've heard of some models that just will not work when the air temp falls below a certain point, but function great once you kick start them with a little warmth.

Yup quick thinking. You need a back up. I built a uds in case my MES died. And am building a mini in case the uds goes south. Lol
