I replaced the ambient temp sensor, but am still getting readings of 44-47 F in the Alabama summer. Is there a way to recalibrate the temp?

After replacing the ambient temp sensor, it just takes time for it to calibrate itself. Drive it a few miles, shut it off, then drive a few more miles, then let idle for a few minutes. If that does not work, try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes, then drive it again.

If all else fails, the sensor may not have been the problem. Check that the wiring at the connector for the senos is not corroded.

Thanks, yes, after sitting over night, it seems to have reset itself and is now reporting accurate temperatures.
