Before replacing the module ($$$$) check the temperature sensor at the front of the vehicle behind the bumper or grill. A reading of -40 indicates a high resistance (NTC resistor sensor). This is probably due to water ingress on a connector causing the high resistance. But could be a bad sensor too. You can also check the module by unplugging the temperature sensor and shorting the two wires that go back to the module together. Shorting the two wires together should show an off scale high reading like 120 or 130 degrees. If it does then the module is OK the problem is the wiring or the sensor. You can use this method to check the wiring all the way up to the module incase there is high resistance in the wiring between the module and the temperature sensor.

This is a very common problem with many of the mid 2000 Ford truck and SUV overhead consoles. The console is very prone to internal failure. I offer a reasonable repair service with a lifetime guarantee, check it out: www.autoclockrepair.com

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.
