Most likely the temp sensor which is in the front of the radiator support was damaged, I would suggest you take it back and make sure that it is hooked up and not damaged by the accident.

Iv got vauxhall zafria model 2004 outside temperature symbol is not coming on dashboard is that a big problem should take it straight to gargage


No outside temperature just shows the temperature outside the car the snowflake symbol will not show up until it is cold enough outside it has 2 stages yellow is an initial warning of cold temperatures when it gets to freezing the symbol will turn red.
The outside temp warning is not connected to anything mechanical only the engine temerature gauge is so dont worry it will not affect the running of the car but is just there as a warning of falling temperatures outside.

Thermometer showing outside temperature is not working


that is actually OC meaning there is an open circuit in the system some where, with out a signal generator at home to test the system, you are on a guessing mission, i would try a outside/ambient air temp sensor first, cheapest and easy to do it on the in front behind the grille on the pass side of the radiator , if this is not it it could be a wiring issue or it needs a new mirror which you have to calibrate the compass in after replacement

Climate control display for Outside temperature


Had the same problem, replaced the ambient air temp sensor in front of the radiator. Cost is like 10-15 bucks. Don't worry if temp doesn't change right away. Took me about 5 miles and then it worked great.

Outside temperature gauge for my malfunctions


The problem is a bad ambient air temp sensor or a broken wire to that sensor. The sensor usually is located in the front of the engine bay on the support for hood latch, between the outer grill and the radiator/condensor assemblies.

My 2000 monte carlo isnt showing the temperature in the screen


Replace the ambient air temperature sensor.

Above the left side of the grille is where the sensor is located. You will have to remove the grille to replace the sensor.

For general awareness, the outside air temperature sensor is located above the inside mirror.
Try to reset the temperature measurement unit: 1. Switch engine on. 2. Press and hold clock minute (min) and hour (h) buttons simultaneoutly longer than 3 seconds. The display will show new temperature measurement unit.

Outside temperature on rearview mirror is sayin OC on 2002 envoy


Have you used the handy search feature? You would find that this is likely caused by one of 2 things. First, the ambient air temperature sensor may have gone bad. Secondly, wiring from the sensor to the mirror may have gone bad. Either way, you would get OC (which stands for OPEN CIRCUIT).

Outside temperature


The exterior temperature display is built into the Automatic temperature control unit. or the A/C controls. Look at the buttons for the A/C unit and press the one that is marked "EXT". This will display the outside temperature.
