Question about 2005 Dodge Ram 1500

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 with a outside temperature sensor not working. It's always reading 54 degrees C. I have tried a new sensor and that's not the problem. Any other suggestions?

Mine was the small circuit board in the overhead console. Got one from a junk yard and swapped it out with no problems. Just make sure the plastic is warm, as when cold they break real easy.

If you can find a buddy who owns a scan tool (a "code reader" won't give enough information) look at the data stream and note the coolant temperature with the engine stone cold. It should be close to the ambient temperature. Next, drive the vehicle until it's up to operating temperature and, again, take note of the coolant temperature. It should be somewhere around 210 degrees F. If it's not, the coolant temperature sensor is probably bad. If you can't get access to a scan tool, just replace the coolant temperature sensor. They're pretty cheap. You'll probably find it somewhere around the thermostat housing.

May be flooded = Try holding the gas pedal to the floor when cranking it, this will put the system into a ' clear flood ' mode. You my also scan the PCM to see if the Tempature reading from the sensor reads right when it's cold. If that's sending the wrong info to the PCM, it won't enrich the fuel mixture to start right. I assume he's putting gas treatment in.

Outside temperature reading on my 2009 Chevy Silverado truck is always 4-8 degrees lower than the actual outside temperature.


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.

I'd be more leaning toward IAT sensor in your intake manifold.(2 wires usually) It basically senses incoming air temperature & sends info to computer to adjust injector flow according to incoming air temperature conditions.
