Another EBV question

I'm new to the forum and I'm sure this topic has been beat to death. However I could really use your help. The EBV in my 99 F-550 is a real pain in the a$$. Most years I park my truck for the winter because of the EBV. No power always hissing you guys know all the stuff that goes along with it. Any way it was 20 degrees out and I needed my truck. Well the thing was never able to warm up enough to stop the EBV from closing. It made me so mad and made the truck such a P.I.T.A. to drive that I'm ready to do what ever it takes to make my truck a more user friendly truck. Right now I don't even want to drive it. The stealership says everything is working the way it should and that I just need to get used to it. Screw them. Where is it and how do I make it stop working ? Will messing with it cause more problems than it's worth ? Anything has got to be better than the way it is now. Thanks.

my ebv does this as well and once its warm it shuts off but i hate the lack of power. im also wondering if just unplugging it will cause problems in the future? i know it will take a little longer to heat up but i don't mind that i just want that hissing GONE!!!!

It throws a "soft" code, meaning it is stored, but will not turn the CEL on.

Can I get maybe a picture of the sensor in relation to the engine as a whole? Also do you just zip tie it somewhere?
