Tip

How to fix the outside temperature gauge


A common problem on Hyundai vehicles is the outside temperature reading in their dash stopped working or displays incorrect temperature. The models in question with this fault are the 2011 Santa Fe, 2013 Sonata, 2013 Elantra.
The problem lies in the wiring harness along the bottom of the rad saddle (bottom/center of rad ). The ambient sensor is located near the horn in front of the rad. Examine the ambient sensor for damage and them follow the two wire down to the bottom of the rad, open up the harness and you will fine a break in the sensor wire from corrosion/ moisture. Repair/ solder in new piece of wire and heat shrink.

2002 bmw has no heat def,or heater .start up error -40deg dash


The ambient temp sensor is out of range maybe came unplugged or is faulty or the computer that reads the sensor is faulty or has a bad connection most ambient sensors are located behind the front grill and are pretty easy to get to enclosed is a typical bmw ambient sensor you didnt say your model so this is just a general idea 1_4_2013_5_06_15_am.jpg

What do the codes p0072 and p0073 mean on my 2008 Dodge avenger? w


Well, I would say that it means that SOMEBODY is confused!

Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0072 is defined by SAE J2012 as "Ambient Air Temperature Sensor Circuit Low" DTC P0073 is defined as "Ambient Air Temperature Sensor Circuit High"

I do not know how the ambient air temperature sensor circuit could be faulted both HIGH and LOW at the same time.

The only thing I have ever seen cause something like this is when people try to install aftermarket "performance chips" on their vehicles which "lie" to the computer about what the ambient air temperature is.

Check engine light on its the air ambient temperature sensor


Ambient air temperature sensor, monitors the temperature around the radiator even when vehicle is off. Uses this information to determine whether the cooling fan needs to run after vehicle is shut off. When sensor is defective, can cause fan to run until battery dies if vehicle is off or may not activate at all, creating an overheat condition.

Ambient air sensor location


The air temperature switch that the vehicle's computer uses to calculate for fuel mixture is in the air cleaner housing. I see it having 4 wire on a diesel engine it and the wiring color is different for manual and automatic transmissions, If you tell me if the truck is manual or auto trans and 2WD or 4wd I can tell you the colors of the wires to look for but first see if it accidentally got disconnected. A gasoline engine has a two wire sensor in the intake duct or air filter housing the wires on this two wire sensor are dark blue/dark green and the other wire is dark blue/ light green.
The ambient air temperature switch for temperature control and outside temperature display is located between the drivers headlight area and radiator, the colors of the wires on the sensor are violet/light green and dark blue/dark green again ensure it is plugged in

Sensor keep coming in for code PO128 - insofficient ambient temp was does this mean how can i fix it


DTC P0128: Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) Below Thermostat Regulating Temperature
Do you have any issues with heat in the vehicle? If so the thermostat may need replaced If not the engine coolant temperature sensor is most likely reading incorrectly due to a bad sensor or connection to the sensor.

My exterior temperature digital readout stays at 50 deg. at all times. not a biggie, but i miss this feature.


get an ambient temp sensor and install it, its located on the driverside front of the vehicle near the radiator, that should fix the issue. the sensor is fairly cheap if i remember correctly
