I would trust them but make sure it is just not in need of some kind of cleaning.

I WANT TO KNOW WHERE THE OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE SENSOR ON MY 2011 CHEVY CRUZE IS LOCATED. I WANT TO REPLACE IT BECAUSE THE DASH GAGE STAYS AT 64 DEGREES.


The ambient temp sensor is usually located somewhere in front of the radiator or behind the front bumper. You'll see a small device, clipped to a nearby metal part of the body with wires attached.

Before replacing the sensor, try improving a possible poor connection by disconnecting and reconnecting the sensor a few times. I've experienced this on my '98 Astro, and the temp displayed correctly after cleaning up the connection.

Happy Motoring!

2006 jetta tdi, ambient temperature location? my a/c quit working and i have no power at the compressor plug, it is up on charge, the dash temperature sensor quit working this winter, this not reading...


the sensor should be located behind the front bumper grill.look through the bumper grill and you should see the ambient temp sender.on the dash,does the display where the temperature used to read have 3 dash lines?if so there is an open circuit in the wiring to the sensor.this will cause the aircon not to work..good luck.

The outside temperature sensor will almost always be in the very front of the car. Before anything else. If it were behind anything, the readings would be skewed by the heat of the car. Check behind the front bumper... look behind the grille and behind the air dam. Good luck.
