Hi my gauge that tells me how warm or cold it is outside isn't working, anyone know how to replace this? I know it's not a big deal but if it's cheap and easy anyone know how to fix it?

Check your exterior temp and intake air sensors are plugged in. Ext temp sensor is under front bumper in front of radiator, intake sensor is plugged into air box. Be sure the wiring isn't damaged, too.

So the wiring is good, I'll have to check the one by the radiator, I might have to replace it, know where I can get the part?

Ambient Air Temp Sensor.

Some call it an Outside Air Temp Sensor.
