Replace the sensor, it is mounted under the hood in the grill, it is 2 bolts holding it in, you can buy this at the dealer only.

My 2009 Peugeot 308's heating is baffling me when i drive at normal speeds say 30 and above the engine temperature gauge never rises and the heater doesnt work but when im in traffic or parked with th

Thermostat may not be working properly, hot coolant has to circulate via the heater core in order to get heat. Normally operation temperation should be 180 to 200 degrees.

Need to know the proper high side/ low side gauge readings when adding freon

The high side should read a little more than 100 pounds plus the ambient temperature. On a 100 degree day the high side will be over 200 pounds. A high side reading of 250 pounds is no problem. The important reading is the low side, and it should always be about 30 pounds. Higher than 30 will produce warmer air, and under 30 will cause the evaporator to freeze up.

Can't find exterior temperature gauge in 2008 Lincoln Nav. L

Page 106 from the owner's manual. It says (if equipped), it's in the MESSAGE CENTER. Press the INFO button (you should see 3 buttons INFO, SETUP, RESET, pressing INFO will toggle the odometer display between a number of things like odometer, distance to empty, outside temperature, etc.

Good luck, if you still need help don't hesitate to stop by your local dealer and have them show you.

INside temp guage reads at 30-40 degrees when it is about 95 here. The air conditioning blows only lukewarm air and I am wondering if these 2 things are connected.

Had this same problem with my car, a 2001 S60 T5. It turned out to be the temperature sensors mounted beneath the exterior mirrors -- you'll see a nipple under each mirror (and you can pop it out with a screwdriver).

One of these external sensors (forgot which side) is used by the engine management system. The other one is used for the inside temp gauge.

I found that one of them (I think the one under the passenger sie mirror, but don't quote me) had popped out, leading to my weird temp readings on the dashboard gauge. So I just popped the sensor back into the bottom of the mirror, and that solved the problem. Check both mirrors, though. If the sensors seem fine, maybe pop them out and then back in...and see if that works.

If that doesn't solve your problem, then you might have to replace the appropriate temp sensor (or worst case, the entire exterior mirror). Good luck!
