You don't need "smart"...

for that to happen. Many years ago, and I hate to admit this, I had an Austin Maestro (it was a cheap stop-gap buy) with one of the first ECUs, including an electric choke. Since the box thought the temperature was permanently high it would never activate the choke making starting in winter a pain.

Plus point in those days though was it could be solved by disassembly and resoldering dodgy joints.
