Changing the external temperature gauge from Fahrenheit to Celsius

If your temperature reads in climate control reads in degrees Celsius "C" instead of Fahrenheit "F", follow these steps to change to Fahrenheit.

  • Turn the ignition on.
  • With the climate control turned on, push and hold the recirculation button in. While holding the button in, push and hold the off button in for 3 seconds or until you hear a beep.

The display should then change to "F". Follow these same steps to change your read-out to Celsius , if preferred.

Outside temperature gauge for my malfunctions

The problem is a bad ambient air temp sensor or a broken wire to that sensor. The sensor usually is located in the front of the engine bay on the support for hood latch, between the outer grill and the radiator/condensor assemblies.

Onboard Temperature gauge

Does your direction work ok? I have seen that if you reset the compass then this will correct the temp problem. If not you can try disconnecting the battery for approx a min and this should reboot the system. If this don't work let me know and I can try to how you fine the fault.

Outside air temp indicator is reading 74-75 degr. F when it is actually 96-99 degr. F outside. Just noticed this after washing car, but am not sure that it wasn't wrong before being washed. Where is...

As of this morning, the outside air temperature was indicating correctly. I suspect that washing the car using high pressure spray near the grill somehow caused the sensor to malfunction until it dried out.
