Outside temp

My outside temp guage used to be spot on. Now it seems to be about showing 10 degrees warmer than outside all the time. I hear the sensor is near the driver's side of the radiator and I havent looked for it yet. Has anyone else has this problem?

The ambient sensor is pretty much down around by the driver's headlight.

If you pull the headlight out, you will see the connector that goes back in to the harness right there, just follow it to the sensor.

Sounds like the sensor has gone bad... not really many other things that could explain that.

$21 from Tousley to find out...

Remove your grille, it's on the driver's side, lower corner.

Right below the area where everyone does the Zoodad Mod.

It sits right on this tab:
