In Topic: Outside Temperature Gauge/ambient Air Temperature Sensor Fault?

09 February 2015 - 12:51 PM

Mine does the same (2011) as did my old Mondeo. I thought it was because of the ambient heat from the engine which artificially raised the temp until you start moving again.

Hmmm. My Fiesta before this one (2011 as well 61 reg), didn't do it?

"Computer says no", lol.
 
Ask for the chief technician to look at it, or ask to start one of their demos and see how long that takes compared to yours...


I might do that, I'll be speaking to them tomorrow, I'm praying for cold weather (I don't think I've ever done that before)

Could just be an overactive thermostat, not the most uncommon problem on earth, too much coolant flow, it shows a cooler temp than normal / stays on the cold map and runs a bit funny, easily sorted by Fraud but you'll be waiting until the new year now. wouldn't say it's anything to worry about, it's a very high temp that you should panic over.

Would this also explain how it's reading the external temperature wrong? A ford dealer has looked at it and said they've put their computer on it but can't find a fault?

I could be wrong, but I believe the Fiesta does not have this feature, only the Focus...


Ah right, back to square one then :(

I've been trying to google to see if anyone else has the same problem. I couldn't, but I seen something about Active Grille Shutters. I don't know if my fiesta has them its the Titanium model, if that makes a difference. I can't look at my car as the garage has it. I'm just wondering if it does have the shutters if that could be anything to do with it?
