2016 Interior Temperature?

Hi,

I just bought a 2016 JGC. It has 'Auto' climate control. In auto mode, it clearly shows the target temperature setting, but I do not see any indication of what the current interior temperature is. The exterior temp is shown in two locations (Uconnect display and DID). Is there a way to see the inside temperature?

Thanks,
Jeff

In all my previous cars, I have never had an internal temp gauge. You set the desired temp, set it to auto and when the fan slows down, your almost there.

Nope. But inside temperature is not important. Outside temperature is important.

If you really need the inside temperature display just buy an aftermarket inside temp gauge.

Re: 2016 Interior Temperature?

This is just a guess, but I would think the temp inside the car varies quite a bit in different area. This would be more so on a sunny day. If you place a few thermometers around the Jeep you might find it would be impractical.

That would be especially true in regards to the rear seat and cargo areas where you don't have the same vent coverage as the front.

However, there's no reason the couldn't mount a temperature sensor in the dome light housing to at least give an approximate overall measurement.

Having said that, set the controls to what is comfortable and don't worry about the numbers.

Honeywell did a study at one point where they found people ran their home heat higher and AC lower when they set it to an actual temperature as opposed to using a range dial that ran from low to high. With the latter, most people tended to run the heat and AC less due to setting it according to how the temperature felt rather than what it actually was.

Re: 2016 Interior Temperature?

Mostly I was just wondering if there was a way to see what the Auto computer 'thought' the temperature was.

I've noticed that if I set it for 67 degrees I get 'full AC' effect with max blowing until I'm downright cold...kicking it up to 68 degrees it immediately slows the blower. So I was wondering if it it just sensing 67.x degrees for a long time for some reason.

Anyway, thanks. FWIW, my brother had a 1986 Volvo that clearly display interior and exterior temperatures....seems a basic thing to do, given the plethora of display options in the Uconnect!

Thanks,
Jeff
