Re: outdoor temperature off???

Both my WK2 and my '05 Ford Sport Trac are very close on temp. It does take a few blocks of drive time to acclimate them to the outside temp, air flow past the sensor is the key.

I know you have to drive for 5-10 mins over a specific MPH for the temp gauge to update.

Re: outdoor temperature off???

I've noticed mine is consistently about 2-3 degrees too high. My two previous vehicles that had a temperate sensor (Explorer & Liberty) were always right on.

Today at lunch, it said it was 47. But it was barely 35 outside.

So does anybody know where the sensor is exactly?

From another post:
They did some research and our gauges are all working as intended. The service manual says the temperature gauges won't update unless the car has been off for 4.5 hours or drives for 5 minutes at speeds over 40mph.
