Outside air temperature sensor

Recommended Posts

I need to replace the 'outside air temperature sensor' on my mk3 2008 Ford Galaxy 2.0 tdci. Could you tell me where it is located please. Also does it have any bearing on the running of the car or is it simply to tell you the outside temperature. Thanks

Most of the time it's located on the outer mirrors, and yes the sensor have influence on the A/C system.

Not in the mirror as i recall but behind the grill on the drivers side, it sends info to the ECU so it does effect engine running but not so much that you notice fuel consumption may increase.

It's at the bottom of bumper, you need to remove the front trim under bumper then you will see the sensor to the right.
