Im not sure but it may be "plug and play" . Check power and grounds.

thanks
the shutter never closes fully after cold starting even after it goes through open/close motions
the main problem is slow warmup in winter time

Is the problem with the shutter or the sensor? Remove sensor and heat with a hair dryer. If ok fully open then do same with aerosol to cool down.See if it closes fully. Are you sure its supposed to close fully. Don,t rely on software too much. Back to basics sometimes is better.
