Here's a link to show you where to look, appears it's to left of drivers headlight looking from in front of vehicle, attached to or near upper rad support. My guess is it will probably be a dealer item, depending how fast you want it I guess. Don't be afraid to pull wire connector off & clean & re-install it, just to see if that doesn't help. A little di-electric grease on installation is a good idea too, to help keep moisture out.
When you get to link(page) scroll down to 4.6L engine, page 2 & click on that. Might not be your engine, but good chance ambient sensor is in same area.( http://www.autozone.com/shopping/repairGuide.htm?pageId=0900c152801e0000 )

Hope this helps-BTW I just did this on 12/04/2011-found my particular issue-I will need a new cable, so I'll have to go to the dealer tomorrow and buy one. Also included images of the tools needed-Good Luck!

2001 VW Beetle TDI. Why does my LCD,outside temp. display,above the rearview mirror, show four dashes all the time(----)?


outdoor temp sensor probably loose connection/failed. The outside air temp sensor is on the bottom drivers side of the grill. Find it and probe it w/ a multimeter. 0.0, or infinite resistance means the sensor is shot.

Also make sure you are getting power from the harness

Outside temp light and compass dont work. what can i do to fix it?


Do the map lights in the overhead console / Illuminated vanity lights work?

This is the same fuse, Cab fuse panel fuse #23 ( hot in run position ).

If the map lights & vanity mirrors on the visors work correctly, it is the solid state module in the overhead console that is the problem ( have seen this, more common on SuperDuty line ).\

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 temp stuck on -40


when its at -40 usually its because the ambient temp sensor is not sending the proper signal to the controller.. it may just be disconnected.. the sensor it behind the grille.. it has a 2 wire connector to it ... itf its connected it may havea broken wire from body damage in an accident... its rare that the sensor fails..

2004 f150 starter wont start


Hi,
First a couple of questions. 1. How old is the battery or has it been replaced? 2. Do you have a lot of electronics in your vehicle? Most importantly what is the cold cranking amp rating of your battery? The CCA rating is stamped on your battery and for your F150 varies quite a bit in choices if you have added electronics, leave your phone or gps plugged in or your radar detector ect. The colder the temp the more cranking amps you need and the problem is compounded with any extra load or if your battery was replaced with one with less CCAs. Your F150 could probably use a battery with a least 875 CCAs. More if you have lots of electronic stuff. If you live in the far north where the temps are routinely that cold then you should consider a fluid circulation pump known as a block heater that plugs into an ac outlet to keep your engine warmer and prevent freezing and thick oil problems especially if you have to park outside. Good Luck
