idle stop

Has anybody tried to modify the idle stop function to activate below 40 degrees farenheit? It seems as if it should be a simple operation if you know where the outside temperature sensor is.

(Perhaps there is a reason that Honda limits this function to warmer temperatures and I shouldn't mess with it? Is the temperature sensor dedicated strictly to the idle stop function or might there be reprecussions elsewhere, such as interior climate control?)

And while I'm at it, my CVT Civic hybrid auto idle stop function drives me crazy even in the warmer weather- seems to have a mind of its own when and whether it decides to activate. Can this be modified to perform more like the manual transmission?
