It is not the gauge it is the sensor located on the front of the car.

I need to charge my ac system on my 1999 chevy s-10, what should the readings be on the ac manifold gauges?


Hi,
With engine running, A/C on max and blower on full speed.
Allow 5 minutes running time like this for system to fully circulate.
Attatch guage to low pressure port.
At 80 degrees outside temperature, you should get between 45-50PSI reading on guage for a full charge. If you have a good reading like that and your A/C is not blowing around 36-40 degree air, most likely you have air in the system. Then a complete discharge of refrigerant in the system and full re-charge is indicated.

THE EXTERIOR TEMPERATURE GAGE IS NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY IT READS 140 DEGREES WHEN IT IS 35 DEGREES OUTSIDE


You will need to replace the outside air temperature sensor these go out quite regularly. The sensor is located behind the grille, and is connected to a 2 wire plug. The easiest way to locate it is to buy the new sensor and then look behind the grille for the old one. You might have to get to it from underneath. It just clips in place.

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. My problem is that my C/T guage reads about three degrees higher on the outside temperature side than the actual temperature is. I realize that might be a minor problem,...


Are you talking about the coolant temperature (c/t) or the ambient temperature (outside temp). If you're refering to the ambient temperature the problem is the sensor is located under the radiator support and picks up the temperature off the pavement this is done intentionally to help detect icing conditions and unfortunatley there is no calibration for the sensor.

No ac


The ambient air temperature sensor is bad or has a connection/wiring problem. It is not blowing cold air because it thinks the outside air is less then 35degrees. When the computer sees outside air less than 35 it disables AC so that ice will not form inside the vehicle and in HVAC system. The sensor is directly behind the front grill. You might be able to check it for connection/corrosion/frayed or damaged wires. If no evidence of this I would replace it.
