Outside Temp Sensor

I'm on my third G but this is is my first one to have readings on my outside temp read high. Anyone else see this and what can be done?

Mine reads ridiculously high. I assume it must be close to the ground such that it absorbs a ton of heat?

Mine always seems really high when I first start the car but after a few minutes of driving it always matches what my phone says the temp is outside. Maybe there is an offset in the settings?

The sensor is usually right behind the front grille on most Nissan/Infiniti, it will read high until you get moving as it is being warmed up by the radiator/condenser right behind it. Mine reads 3-4 too high until the car starts moving. Subarus have the same behaviour.

Mine seems very high as well. I replaced it with an oem one the other day, and that did not help. Oh well!!!

Its too bad someone doesnt make a plug and play relocate kit with an extended wire. I bet if you got the thing further away from the motor it would solve it

Mine reads about 15 degrees too high. It's hot in Florida, but it's not 115 out there lol!

I think 109 is the hottest I've seen.

We should hijack this into the post your min/max temp readings thread
