SOURCE: temperature guage

Right behind the grill around the rad. support on the passenger side (usually) there is a sensor called an ambient temperature sensor. That gives your outside temp. on your rearview mirror.

SOURCE: ambient temp guage problems

The temperature sensor is located in front of the radiator on the passenger side. Replacements cost approx $25.00.

SOURCE: Can't get the outside temp. showing in the inside backview mirror

Check the connector that plugs into the back of the mirror and make sure it is pushed in all the way. If that is not it, look carefully at the wires going into the connector. I had one that broke off. I had to pull the pin out of the connector and re crimp it onto the wire.

SOURCE: temperature control sensor?

Sounds like a loose connection -38 is probably the open circuit position. Not sure where the sensor would be though.

The interior rear view mirror has temperature and compass displays, but only work for a short time at start- up.I have tried unplugging the harness on the back of the mirror and cleaning contacts. It`s...


Temperature Display
The inside rearview mirror supplies a 5 volt signal circuit and low reference circuit to the ambient air temperature sensor. The inside rearview mirror monitors and records the voltage on the signal circuit of the ambient air temperature sensor. The inside rearview mirror uses this recorded voltage to display the temperature on the temperature display portion of the compass/temperature display. The temperature display will show "ICE" when the ignition is first turned on and the current temperature is 3°C (37°F) or below. The display will toggle between "ICE" and the actual outside temperature for approximately 4 minutes.
The mirror will display "OC" if the mirror senses a temperature of less than -40°C (-40°F).
the mirror will display a "SC" if the mirror senses a temperature of greater than 112°C (143°F).



Replace the inside rearview mirror with compass. Refer to Inside Rearview Mirror Replacement .

Temp reading on rearview mirror always says 0C


OC means open connection. Check connector at temperature sensor under the hood, it is located along the radiator support about at center position.

Why does my rear view mirror read OC


Open Circuit, check the wiring/connector from the mirror. If the connector is ok, you may have a bad outside temperature sensor, good luck.

Dimming mirror temp is OC


OC means out of calibration,,, go to a big parking lot and drive in circles,this lets the compass relearn its position,if this doesnt work,,take it to the dealer there may be something else wrong

Outside temperature on rearview mirror is sayin OC on 2002 envoy


Have you used the handy search feature? You would find that this is likely caused by one of 2 things. First, the ambient air temperature sensor may have gone bad. Secondly, wiring from the sensor to the mirror may have gone bad. Either way, you would get OC (which stands for OPEN CIRCUIT).
