    2009 wrx thermometer

    today when i was driving on the highway i noticed that my outside temp reading (next to the clock and mpg) was flashing. It flashed for about 1 minute than stopped?
    Nothing seemed wrong with my ride, no weird noises, smells, or smoke..ive just never saw this happen and wondering what it could mean?

    anyone else experience this before or know what it could mean?

    Its a warning that road conditions may be hazardous... IE icey black ice and what not... It will flash at 37 F....

    FYI: this is listed in your manual which one should always read.

    Not trying to hijack this thread, but,
    Does anyone know where the probe for the thermometer is located? I went to an automated car wash and had them do just an underbody wash to remove salt I couldn't get with the hose. After the wash the temperature reading was really screwy for a few days, after which its behavior returned to normal. I was wondering if it was coincidence or the underbody wash caused this. 09 sedan if it matters.

    That display is signaled by the ambient temp. sensor which I believe is located right in the bumper...( If you get down and sort of look into the bumper you should be able to see it...So it does make sense that it might act funky if you got some water in it...
