Outside temperature reading Jaguar X type 2004

The digital dispaly for outside temperature reads very either very low or very high, also the internal heater seems needs to be set to a high temperatures to obtain internal comfort, this only seems to be the case since the external diplay developed a fault are the two linked

Thanks

On the jags there is a sensor on the outside by the front bumper cover on the bottom right it sends the signel to the a/c control head panel on the inside of the car you will need to go to a Jag Dealership to buy the sensor..

Yes - sensor does affect the air-con performance. Mine reads high when wet (up to 35C even though only 2C actual) - I am 99% sure it is because the road salt (currently winter here) that is all over it, is bridging the contacts when wet. As it dries out again it returns to near normal. So before buying a new one try giving current one a good clean, clean the contacts, and try some vaseline or grease to keep the muck out. Very good how to change it at http://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/x-type-14/how-ambient-air-temp-sensor-faq-33261/

MY 2004 PACIFICA'S SPEEDOMETER IS RUNNING HIGH AND THE OUTSIDE TEMP IS NOW READING IN CELSIUS. WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM?


I would imagine that the car is fitted with some sort of menu where you can change the vehicle's readout settings into metric, so that now your car is reading in kilometers per hour and is also displaying temperature in the metric range.
You should access any in vehicle computer and reselect the ranges you wish to use.

2002 Ford explorer outside temperature reading is wrong. Changed temperature sensor between grill and radiator but still wrong temperature reading on dash. Reads 10 degrees too low all the time and it does...


This may be a wiring issue as the sensor is electronic in nature. Any loose wiring may cause the voltage across the sensor to differ resulting in an inaccurate reading.

How many pounds of r134 and how much oil ozs.


somewhere around 1.6 pounds (1lb.14ounces) of R134a if system is evacuated and 3 ounces of oil with new compressor.
keep pressure on the low side around 34-37psi & it should blow snow. Below are normal car AC pressure readings with 134A.
  • Normal readings on high and low side with AC OFF (static pressure) – Depends on outside temperature, but normally is between 80-105 PSI
  • Normal low side reading with AC on high speed and MAX & engine at 800-1000 RPM’s – Ranges from 25-35 PSI –
  • Normal high side reading ranges from 200-350 PSI
Don’t assume that if adding little Freon is good that adding a lot is better! Overcharging just a little can decrease the performance of the system and possibly damage the compressor.
DIY recharge kit:
With the AC on the coldest setting, use a thermometer in a middle vent. Normal vent temperature readings will vary depending on the (ambient) outside temp. The vent temperature should range from around 42-55 degrees in my experience. If normal gauge readings are obtained and the vent air is cold – STOP don’t overcharge the system.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

If normal gauge readings are obtained and the vent air is cold – STOP don’t overcharge the system. The only proper way to remove refrigerant is with a AC recovery machine so if this is being done at home I can’t emphasize enough not to over charge the system.

Air conditioner compressor runs - freon is up to proper level....not cooling??


BOTH High and low readings should be checked to have a better idea of what is going on with an AC system but based on the limited information… the compressor is not engaged or is not pumping. Below are some things I would check;

1. Check the high and low gauge readings with the AC on & set on MAX/Recirculate, middle vents with the engine at 2,000 RPM’s, blower speed on high.

2. Check the vent temperatures with a thermometer from the middle vents, far right & far left vents?

3. What is the outside temperature at the time the readings were taken?
4. Check to see if the condenser fan blowing strong?

5. Notice if compressor clutch is cylcling excessively.
Could be overcharged, not enough air going across condenser fins, compressor not pumping sufficiently… BOTH gauge readings are really needed to get a better idea.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck, keep me posted. Be glad to help you get your A/C running again soon.

Thermometer not reading correctly


I would guess the outside thermometer has lost its calibration.
Does it seem consistently 5, 10 or 20 degrees off all the time?
Let me know.
