Exterior Temp Gauge

Anyone know how to fix it or know where the sensor is to maybe replace it or could it be as easy as a re-calibration? I am tired of the gauge being 20+ off.

mine has just been fouled. I believe it is salt covered though as it says it is 98*
and it is actually 22...

Where is it located? I don't believe since I bought my truck mine was ever accurate.

08
open hood. look to passenger side or intercooler/radiator near the headlight. find the plug that is capped off. that's it.

I plan on powerwashing mine this weekend and hoping to clean it off.

Is it connected to the headlight just above the fastening bolt?

Yup I found it thank you. Mine looks relatively clean so maybe it's on its way out? I can have a 30 degree difference sometimes.

I think I am a dummy, since the winter front was on the temp was off and it's basically spot on nowadays it's off.

Haha yep... Winter cover blocks air coming in, and temps go up. Mine read 98 when it was 12 out because the winter cover was on. Some people have relocated their sensor to alleviate that. Just put it in a location that sees airflow (ie lower grill).
