    Outside Temperature Sensor location?

    My digital outside temperature display in the center dash pod is lying to me. It keeps reading 81-82 degrees, when its clearly much hotter than that. I believe there's something wrong with the sensor that provides input...? Anyone know where to find it so I can at least visually inspect it and possibly avoid a trip to the dealership. I couldn't find anything about it in the manual. Thanks!

    It's mounted in front of the bottom edge of the radiator on the left side of the car. You can see it easily in the lower bumper opening.

    Keep in mind that the sensor is in a shade and not enclosed. So the temperature it displays is correct to the outside. The inside may feel hotter due to your interior soaking up heat and the green house effect.

    True, but when its 98 degrees (verified by weather.com and me sweating my arse off), and it's saying it's 81, we have a problem.
