Location of Ambient air sensor 2006 Ram 1500 Laramie/hemi

I am trying to locate the ambient air sensor, I want to replace just to see if it has anything to do with the fact that the fan/ac does not always automatically come on when I start the car, it hesitates sometimes for 5 minutes then works fine again, usually when a/c was left on, but, sometimes with no a/c and just fan left in ON position when I stopped the car. Also, the recirculation does not work, the light works , but, nothing happens under the dash. Any ideas?

There is a trouble some flap to blame for your problems ( part number # 68004226AB). This flap is made of cheap plastic and moves back and forth when u press the recirculation button. The part that slips on the motor breaks. When this happens the flap will fall over the hole for the fan to pull air. This might be why u are seeing hesitation in the fan. Sometimes when u stop that flap covers the hole, sometimes it dosent.


Easy way to fix this trouble some door is to remove the air bag, then cut out plastic grid that is over housing (try not to let any of the grid fall inside the housing this might break the some of the fan blades) you will then see the door laying at the bottom. Then Pull the motor off the side of housing, slide old door out then new one in. This is the easy way the other way is, well lets say trouble some.

I was told that I need a discharge sensor 2006 Mercury Milan. The AC blows but they said the sensor in the dash is not telling the AC to come on. But when I try to buy this part no one knows what that...


There are two sensors; Climate Control Sun Sensor located on the dash or rearview mirror, and an Ambient Air Temperature Sensor located by the climate control panel. I believe the one you're looking for will be the Ambient Air Temperature Sensor.

Were is the IAT sensor located on my 1999 dodge ram


This should be the only sensor located on the Air Filter casing/intake. It measures the Intake Ambient Air Temperature and sends that information to the PCM/IPM to gauge the correct Air and Fuel mixture to have the Engine start and run.

Don't know where the tac sensor is under hood


It is located on the "underside" of the hood where that little lamp is located.not on the engine compartment but on the literal hood. It is called the Ambient Temperature sensor.TAC. There is another name for it now but it is the same thing.
