If you read your FSM yo will find htat the cold startisnot activated until it is like -20. It should be a non-issue in CA>

My FSM says:

Thermotime Switch
Cooling water tempeature
Below 14 C (57 F) = Switch ON.
Between 14 C to 25 C (57 F to 77 F) = Switch ON or OFF (indeterminate)
Above 25 C (77 F) = Switch OFF

And the resistance of the heating coil inside the switch should be 40 to 70 ohms.

i bypassed all the wiring to my cold start valve and
put in a switch inside the car
so on cold nites i just tap the switch and turn the ignition key to start it
and it starts right up
