2012 Nissan Maxima ambient air temperature sensor location

I have 2012 Nissan Maxima that the inside display show a -22 degrees always. I have narrowed it down to the ambient air temperature sensor and I have bought a new one but can't find the location of the old sensor. I need some help!!!

SOURCE: location of a o2 sensor 2001 nissan maxima

bank 1 refers to the side of the engine that #1 cylinder is on , and sensor 2 refers to downstream , after the catalytic converter. , this link shows bank 1 on a 2001 nissan maxima V6 being on the firewall side . if you had a 4 cylinder it would be downstream after the catalytic converter .

Anywhere along the intake tube to the throttle body. Look for cables and harnesses around the intake.

Same car, same problem. Press MODE, FRONT and REAR buttons together to reset tempreture. You probably need to replace the sensor GM part number 15047946 it is in the front grill email me for a picture. chris.abbott@gmx.com

06 rendezvous that the digital temp display for outside temp is wrong. The display reads 32 degree and it is actually 80 degrees so the A/C does not cool vehicle down. What is the problem?


Suspect a failure in the ambient air temp sensor. Has the vehicle ever been in a frontal collision? This sensor is normally located in front of the radiator assembly bolted to the rad support. If it is reading a cold temperature, it will not allow the AC to operate

AC recirculation is not working (outside temp is -37 degree centiigrade).


there is a damper that opens and closes to allow air to recirculate or come from outside. Find out where that is and check it out.

Air conditioner comes on briefly then stops. The temperature gage on the panel which shows outside temperature is inaccurate sometimes giving a display of -27 degrees.


Well the outside temperature gauge is generally not wired into the a/c. The internal temperature is more important but is not displayed as such. The 'internal' temperature sensor is used to regulate the a/c blending door and blower speed.

When did the cooling problem start?

My inside temp led didplay always shows 50 degrees for my 2002 trailblazer so the Ac won't blow really cold air


If you mean the temperature display on the rearview mirror, you need to replace the outside temperature sensor. It is located under the hood, on the radiator support on the top near center.

04 Tahoe AC blows hot air on drivers side but resets if restarted


A educated guess I would have to say there is a problem with HVAC control module ! electronics you know ! But that's not the way to do things ! There could be codes stored in the module. The Chevy dealer my have a reflash bulletin for this problem . Then can reflash , reprogram the control module ! The first place to start is checking for codes in the HVAC module.
The HVAC control module is a class 2 device that interfaces between the operator and the HVAC system to maintain air temperature and distribution settings. The battery positive voltage circuit provides power that the control module uses for keep alive memory (KAM). If the battery positive voltage circuit loses power, all HVAC DTCs and settings will be erased from KAM. The body control module (BCM), which is the vehicle mode master, provides a device on signal.
Air Temperature Sensors The air temperature sensors are a 2-wire negative temperature co-efficient thermistor. The vehicle uses the following air temperature sensors:
?€¢
Ambient Air Temperature Sensor

?€¢
Inside Air Temperature Sensor Assembly

?€¢
Inside Air Temperature Sensor Assembly-Auxiliary

?€¢
Upper Left Air Temperature Sensor

?€¢
Upper Right Air Temperature Sensor

?€¢
Lower Left Air Temperature Sensor

?€¢
Lower Right Air Temperature Sensor

?€¢
Upper Air Temperature Sensor-Auxiliary

?€¢
Lower Air Temperature Sensor-Auxiliary
A signal and low reference circuit enables the sensor to operate. As the air temperature surrounding the sensor increases, the sensor resistance decreases. The sensor signal voltage decreases as the resistance decreases. The sensor operates within a temperature range between -40?° to +101?°C (-40?° to +215?°F). The sensor signal varies between 0-5 volts.
The input of the duct air temperature sensors are different from the ambient and inside air temperature sensors. The HVAC control module converts the signal to a range between 0-255 counts. As the air temperature increases the count value will decrease.
If the HVAC control module or auxiliary HVAC control module detects a malfunctioning sensor, then the control module software will use a defaulted air temperature value. The default value for the ambient and inside air temperature sensors will be displayed on the scan tool. The default value for the duct air temperature sensors will not be displayed on the scan tool. The scan tool parameter for the duct air temperature sensors are the actual state of the signal circuit. The default action ensures that the HVAC system can adjust the inside air temperature near the desired temperature until the condition is corrected.
The ambient air temperature sensor mounts underhood and can be affected by city traffic, by idling, and by restarting a hot engine. Therefore, the HVAC control module filters the value of the ambient air temperature sensor for temperature display. The ambient air temperature value is updated under the following conditions: Or you can just buy a new control module an hope that it fixes it. $89.00 at www.partsgeek.com

bpagett: the component you are referring to is called an "AMBIENT SENSOR". It is located behind the front bumper cover on the radiator core support near the center of the vehicle. The part is about 2 inches long and bullet shaped. It has the wire harness plugged into it. Sorry I don't have a part number for you.

Misreading outside temperature sensor on 2001 Audi A4


There are four sensors for ambient tempurature and they work in unison to provide information to the temp reading on the dash, the heater control head ( where to direct air, blending of warm/cold/outside/inside air flapper controls) depending on the ambient temp and the inside air temp sensor located just above the radio as well as the sun sensor on the top of the dash as well as the a/c compressor head.

When you start your car, the body control module takes the readings from all sensors, outside air temp located in front of the radiator, air temp sensor located in the airbox ( senses temp of air being drawn in from the outside into the air box), coolant temp, inside air temp sensor and the sun sensor on top of the dash (this is why it takes a few seconds for the climate control system to begine when you start the car). The intake air sensor is 1st priority, inside air second, coolant third, ambient 4th and sun 5th. For instance, if the sun sensor reads the sun is hot but the interior sensor reads cold, the inside akes priority. The goal is for the system to achieve a tempurature inside the car that matches the selected temp. It uses all of the sensors to set the system up to achieve that goal as quickly as possible.

Example; Its mid afternoon, sunny and 40 degrees outside adn your in stop and go traffic. The intake sensor reads 40 degrees, the outside sensor reads 60 degrees (heat from radiator...engine heat protrudes into cabin) and the sun sensor reads high (sun is strong). The system is set for 72. priority one sensor reads 40, inside sensor reads 65, ambient reads 60= system will blow hot air to the floor out put, dash outlets will lightly flow 65 degree air so the sun doesnt roast you yet your feet are cold(if it blew hot air from all outlets, your upper body would be hot but your legs/feet would be cold). as the interior sensor reaches desired temp, air will be distrubuted through thee dash, defrost and floor with the warmest air coming out the floor and defrost, coolest air out the dash vents. Its a complex system!

The two sensors that will screw the system up the most are the intake and interior sensors. the system will function reasonably well with just those two sensors though it wont blend air temps between outlets if the sun sensor isnt working. If the outside sensor fails, it simply uses the intake sensor, if the intake sensor fails it will rely on the front sensor. However, since the intake takes priority over the outside sensor, if the intake sensor sends incorrect resistance info rather than failing, it will take priority and cause the unit to malfunction such as in your case.

The intake air sensor can be changed from the outside with patience. If it where me, I would pay the two hrs labor and let the dealer do it right.
