Question about 1999 Volkswagen Beetle

Open Question

Outdoor temperature sensor doesn't work.

The outdoor temperature sensor doesn't work. It lights up when I turn the car on and shows dashes (- - -) where the numbers should be, but later the whole screen just lights up blue.

The sensor for the temp display in located in front of the radiator under the hood, it is round and has 2 wires going to it, plug and unplug it a few times and recheck to see if the display works, if not replace the sensor.

SOURCE: 1999 VW Beetle outside temp display not working

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.

Reset air temperature sensor on 2002 bravada


Instructions
1
Shut off the engine of your Bravada, remove the keys from the ignition, and open the hood.
2
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.
3
Unplug the outdoor temperature sensor by separating the plug from its socket.
4
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.

Hi Mps75200.
When you lower your top down make sure it is all the way down before releasing the button. This would cause the buzzer to go off. There is a secondary motor that pulls the top down another 1-2 inches after the top appears to have stopped moving to lock it in place. Hope this helps.

The message center shows incorrect outdoor temperature. It reads about 25 degrees higher than outside temp.


I would suspect that the connection to the outside temperature sensor is not good or the sensor itself is bad. Check the connection and clean and reattach as necessary. Otherwise replace the sensor. I think they're pretty reasonably priced.

The outside air temperature sensor for a 2000 Windstar is located under the front bumber on the passengers side. It is clearly visible if you lay down and look through the lower two air openings in the plastic bumper. It is the only electrical device in that area and it is made of black plastic.

The overhead outdoor temperature Gage reads 25-75 degrees below actual temperature I have tried resting the compass and disconnected the battery for fiver minutes. Where is the outside temperature sensor...


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!

HELP!! I got a problem with my A/C


I looked at the pdf file page 20 of page 124 for t-stat says for a Y594g1476 to remove the jumper IF W1 is used. I don't know if you have 2nd stage of heat such as electric heat. I would check wiring according to your outdoor unit and indoor unit and the t-stat. At the very least you will need R and it looks like X terminal giving you the 24 volts. for the control circuit. O is for the reversing valve. G for the blower. Y for the compressor contactor. W1 goes to the fan section to operate 2nd stage heat if you have it.You can also remove the t-stat and make sure you have the correct subbase which the PDF file shows for a y594g1476 stat it should be a Q674 series. Also what you can do with the stat off is jump out R to G to O to Y that should bypass the t-stat and bring on the fan and compressor contactor and the reversing valve. ( reversing valve is energized in the cooling mode ) see what happens ,you may have a built in 5 minute timer before it starts.I was unable to find the PDF on your Tempstar. So I am not sure what the outdoor coil temp. sensor is. I know that to initiate a defrost heat pumps use an outdoor sensor strapped on the outdoor coil bend. it usually labeled DFT (defrost thermostat ) but that should only work in the heat mode. Also they may show an OPITIONAL outdoor sensor/stat to stage 2nd stage of heat if using electric heat. But as far as I know that is installed by the contractor and is optional. In closing I would double check the control wiring from the t-stat to the outdoor unit to the fan section. Then I would bypass the t-stat with the method I told you. You can also take it one step at a time R to G blower fan starts .R to O reversing valve energizes. R to Y compressor contactor closes (after 5 minutes).Also the PDF shows an optional outdoor sensor that hooks up to the thermostat. If your handy with a volt meter check that you have 24 volts between R and X terminal at the stat
