Question about 1996 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

1 Answer

Outside Temperature Indication

Outside temperature sensor not reading (blacked out) on instrument panel. Removed trim panel under front bumper at Left hand side. I can see the hole for the sensor, but no sensor. Purchased a sensor but there does not appear to be any wiring harness to connect it up to. Haynes show a 2 pin socket one green wire one brown. Searched and searched for this but unable to find it. Only wires for horn and LH lights in this area. Certain it is not there. Inspected wiring loom cannot see any unofficial modification. I would like to have the outside temperature working but I do not want to go to the trouble of removing the instrument cluster to connect new wiring at the multiway plug.

2005 Audi A4 temperature reading is way low and it's causing the heat to come on when it's hot outside.


You need to change the outside air temperature sensor. A good diagnostic machine should be able to give the reading to make sure. The sensor is normally located in the drivers side door mirror or behind the front bumper.

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.

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.

It should be attached to the front of the lower radiator support behind the front fascia. Look for the two wire pigtail harness hanging loose if the sensor is missing or you can't find it.

The outside temperature sensor will almost always be in the very front of the car. Before anything else. If it were behind anything, the readings would be skewed by the heat of the car. Check behind the front bumper... look behind the grille and behind the air dam. Good luck.
