You will need to replace the outside air temperature sensor these go out quite regularly. The sensor is located behind the grille, and is connected to a 2 wire plug. The easiest way to locate it is to buy the new sensor and then look behind the grille for the old one. You might have to get to it from underneath. It just clips in place.
the air sensor yur thinking of is usually found out front of the car on the post that supports the hood latch betwween the radiator assemblies and the oute decorative grill. go to your auto parts store like autozone and ask for the ambient air temp sensor. then if they can, ask for a diagram of its location. Its real easy to replace usually one bolt and one wire clip. Autozone has /offers these do it yourself repar guides that can help you .
in the grill area is a sensor it is very comon for the sensor to go bad ,check it to make sure it is clean of debrie (bugs) un plug the sensor see if the temp changes if it does thats most likly your problem, you can test the sensor with a ohm meter by warming it up while reading the resistance
The exterior temperature display is built into the Automatic temperature control unit. or the A/C controls. Look at the buttons for the A/C unit and press the one that is marked "EXT". This will display the outside temperature.
