Question about 2001 Volvo S60
I have a 2001 S60 T5 that occasionally reports (via the dashboard gauge) that the ambient temperature is 30-40 degrees Fahrenheit lower than reality. Furthermore, my A/C has been acting strangely. I understand that the ambient temperature sensor for the dashboard gauge is under the passenger side mirror, and the sensor for the ECC is under the driver side mirror. Do I need to replace these sensors, or should I merely check the wiring? I work on my car a bit, so can I do this myself? If so, what steps should I take? Thanks!

It's either the sensor, wiring or the module that interprets the temperature, I believe.
I have a 1999 Ford Expedition that reports a false low temperature as well, It started doing this after I washed the car, and intermittently does report a temperature lower than reality.
Good luck fixing this problem.
