    Question Outside Air Temperature Display

    My display quit working, it just shows an "F".
    Every once in a while when I start it , it shows 32 degrees.
    Does anyone know where this sensor is located? I'm thinking it
    could be clogged/covered with something.

    It's right behind the radiator, at the bottom, on the drivers side. It's about the size of a marble. Mine was doing the same thing as yours. I looked, and my sensor was gone, there were just 2 wires there, and the hole the size of a marble that the sensor snaps into. If your sensor is missing, rockauto has them for like 18 bucks.

    I'll be damned. All I found was 2 wires hanging down too.

    I got real lucky... I found MY sensor
    in the driveway of my apt complex.
    I can't believe it layed there for over 4 days and
    no one ran it over. I rigged the wiring and reinstalled it.
    Now I know how damn hot it is....

    it's amazing when stuff like that happens, dust it off, put it back in and it works
