I thought I got lean burn any time, because I've had it when temps were in the teens (lowest it got in Michigan while I was there), but I had two episodes of 2-3 minutes where I couldn't get lean burn on my drive down to college last night and the temp was 31 both times. I haven't added a resistor yet.
Right now I just have the stock temperature sensor in place. I saw no need to fool it; in the past I had a resistor in place to get auto-stop at lower temperatures, but I'm actually looking to avoid that right now.

I can't think of what might be preventing your car, if it behaves the same as mine. I'm thinking it's very likely ECU programming.
