SOURCE: No ac

The ambient air temperature sensor is bad or has a connection/wiring problem. It is not blowing cold air because it thinks the outside air is less then 35degrees. When the computer sees outside air less than 35 it disables AC so that ice will not form inside the vehicle and in HVAC system. The sensor is directly behind the front grill. You might be able to check it for connection/corrosion/frayed or damaged wires. If no evidence of this I would replace it.

SOURCE: THE EXTERIOR TEMPERATURE GAGE IS NOT FUNCTIONING

You will need to replace the outside air temperature sensor these go out quite regularly. The sensor is located behind the grille, and is connected to a 2 wire plug. The easiest way to locate it is to buy the new sensor and then look behind the grille for the old one. You might have to get to it from underneath. It just clips in place.

SOURCE: Outside temperature reading on my 2009 Chevy

the outside temperature sensor on vehicles takes the temperature of the air about 2-3 inches off the ground, that close to the ground it might be a couple degrees colder than the temperature on the thermometer you have mounted in the window of your house.

AC recirculation is not working (outside temp is -37 degree centiigrade).


there is a damper that opens and closes to allow air to recirculate or come from outside. Find out where that is and check it out.

Outside temperature reading -40 and outside temperature sensor has been replaced


had the same problem, it needs time to calibrate, you have to drive it over 19 miles per hour for at least 10 minutes or so and it should reset itself. I would just take it on a drive if you haven't done so yet.

I have a smog tech who says my timing is wrong. I went to another mechanic who says it is good. I was told there is a tolerance of plus or minus 3, what is the correct way to read the scale?


I'd set it as close as dead on as possible,, a plus or minus of 3 degrees, off of whats the suggested timing, is just that,,,, OFF,, 3 degrees can make the motor fire late, or early, which in turn makes the computer make up the difference, each and every stroke, thats only 35k times a minute,, get what I'm saying,

I need to charge my ac system on my 1999 chevy s-10, what should the readings be on the ac manifold gauges?


Hi,
With engine running, A/C on max and blower on full speed.
Allow 5 minutes running time like this for system to fully circulate.
Attatch guage to low pressure port.
At 80 degrees outside temperature, you should get between 45-50PSI reading on guage for a full charge. If you have a good reading like that and your A/C is not blowing around 36-40 degree air, most likely you have air in the system. Then a complete discharge of refrigerant in the system and full re-charge is indicated.
