-50C

7 posts in this topic

Okay. Why is my temp sensor giving me a reading of -50C? Anybody seen this one before?

It started counting down all the way down to -50 in random steps. After about 10 minutes it went in reverse all the way up to the normal outside temp.

I thought for a second I was reenacting a scene out of The Day After Tomorrow...

my girlfriends corsa always displays an outside temp of a least 60 degrees FIREdevil.gif

so was it both the dash and climatronic giving the wrong reading?

Read on a recent post that someone had had their sidelight replaced by the dealer and they forgot to reconnect the temp sensor, the dealers take the bumper off for the job. Same symptoms so sounds like a disconnect somewhere.

It sounds like the temp sensor has disconnected or is faulty. You will find it at behind the bottom right hand grill below the head light, I know this because when replacing a faulty headlamp my dealer had forgotten to reconnect it resulting in the exact symptoms you have.

Hope that is of some help 169144-ok.gif
