3.5 engine 2009 impala intermittantly not starting,when it does start displays engine hot,a/c off How can I fix it myself

The impala uses the computer to start. When you turn the key to start it you can immediately release the key and it will start on its own. Sounds like the coolant temp sensor is possibly preventing it from starting. When it doesn't start what does the coolant temp gauge read?
