    Catera outside air temp help

    Help,

    I have a 1998 Catera whose ambient/outside digital air temp reading always displays a "F". Sometimes on cold days it will read -42. Also where is the air temp sensor located?

    I am also interested if anyone has information about the location of the sensor. Mine always reads 140*.

    I think the sensor is that little ball on the very front of the dash. Not too sure though, but i believe so.

    What he said, if you are getting a "F" reading it means
    that the sensor is gone, like mine was. I later found it, rewired and hooked it back up.
    Or the sensor is shot.
    It ez to tell look for 2 hanging wires by the drivers side fog light.
    Underneath.

    Just for reference, the sensor is a small plastic piece that snaps into a hole the size of a marble, so if you see a hole there, you know your sensor is gone.
