This is posted in cars & trucks but it doesn't sound like you are talking about a vehicle. Sounds like an indoor/outdoor weather station. These can have a limited range. Only suggestion I have is some have a channel selector - try a different frequency, there may be interferance.

SOURCE: the overhead outdoor temperature Gage reads 25-75

The outdoor temp sensor is just inside the grill when you opent the hood. The part cost around $76 and kind of looks like a electrical plug receptacle. There are little clips holding the old one in that need to be held apart to dislodge it, slip the new one in, and you're done. Took about 5 minutes.

Good luck!

SOURCE: Coolant Sensor Bad Message

This is a comon problem with the Grand Cherokee.
Change out your coolent sensor fist. Not your float switch.
Second if it comes on again this is what your going to do.
Remove your glove box, and take out the information center.
You will remove the screan and take it to the bench.
You will see on the back of the board some solder joints.
Carefully re-solder them all back to new condition.
This was a fualt in Jeeps line. The soldering went bad behind your screen.

SOURCE: po133 o2 circuit slow bank1, snesor 1 Where is

There are 4 such sensors on your car. this sensor is on the passenger side of the car just below where the exhaust manifold attaches to the exhaust pipe. There is a similar one on the driver's side and the other two are downstream of the catalytic converters. See picture below and let me know if you have more questions.

SOURCE: Coolant Sensor Bad Message

The problem Has nothing to do with the coolant sensor, Or for that matter anything to do with the cooling system at all, Check out Jeepforumdotcom & under "coolant sensor Bad fix" You will see that it actually has to do with crummy soldering on the back of the VIC (Vehicle Information Centre), & all that is needed to fix this problem is a bit of solder & some patience, I know this because I have changed my coolant sensor on the engine block and in the reservoir & the thermostat just to be sure & all with brand new original jeep parts not aftermarket rubbish, & all it took was a bit of solder & searching the answer on

Reset air temperature sensor on 2002 bravada

Shut off the engine of your Bravada, remove the keys from the ignition, and open the hood.
Locate the plug that powers the outdoor sensor. You will find it in between the front bumper and frame of the car, just to the right of the rightmost support bracket. The sensor plug is green.
Unplug the outdoor temperature sensor by separating the plug from its socket.
Plug the sensor back in, close the hood, and start the car. If the sensor's performance has not changed, it will need to be replaced.

Temperature display isn't accurate

Hi Dale. Look under the front bumper either on the left or right trim panel. The trim panels are triangle in shape. An outside temp sensor usually sits in this area. The sensor may be missing. BMW has the sensor, wire, and connector available sperately if they are missing or damaged. It will cause the outside reading to be -40 and can cause the a/c compressor not to operate.

Where is the coolant sensor located on GMC 1999 Suburban?

Getting code p1361 on my 99 civic. what is the problem and how do you fix it?

Code P1361 = Intermittent Interruption In TDC 1 Sensor Circuit

Turns out Top Dead Center (TDC) sensor was bad. Yours is too.

This sensor in located behind the timing chain cover on my 2001 civic. You have to take the cover off to get to it. Honda dealer wanted $360 in labor to change the sensor. Because it was in the same the location Honda would have changed my timing chain for no extra labor charge. So I went to the Honda dealer and got the sensor ($56) and went to the auto parts store and got a timing chain, water pump, and new belts. Local mechanic changed all these parts for $160 in labor (others wanted $230). $130 for the sensor and timing chain and $30 more for the pump. I probably could have hacked that timing chain cover off myself but that is what thought would happen. A hack job. And it was time for a new chain anyway. 92 plus degrees outside and the civic is running fine.

Good luck (remember rated this post).

2001 VW Beetle TDI. Why does my LCD,outside temp. display,above the rearview mirror, show four dashes all the time(----)?

outdoor temp sensor probably loose connection/failed. The outside air temp sensor is on the bottom drivers side of the grill. Find it and probe it w/ a multimeter. 0.0, or infinite resistance means the sensor is shot.

Also make sure you are getting power from the harness

For general awareness, the outside air temperature sensor is located above the inside mirror.
Try to reset the temperature measurement unit: 1. Switch engine on. 2. Press and hold clock minute (min) and hour (h) buttons simultaneoutly longer than 3 seconds. The display will show new temperature measurement unit.

Adjusting info display after battery disconnect

The instruments you talk of don't have a memory that retains info if the battery power is lost, the technician has a little back up power supply that goes in the cigar lighter to avoid this loss of memory.
