If you are getting odd performance from your HVAC system there is a chance that the outside air temperature sensor is going bad. Replacing the sensor itself is easy and can be accomplished in a few minutes; unfortunately you need to remove the bumper cover first to get access to it. Please see our article on bumper removal for additional assistance.

With the bumper off you can see the sensor on the outside lower section of the radiator/condenser (red arrow).

Squeeze the plastic end of the sensor (red arrow) and wiggle it out from the plastic mount.

Squeeze the plastic end of the sensor (red arrow) and wiggle it out from the plastic mount. It is easier to separate the wiring connection with the sensor out of its mount.

Next, release the clip in the connector (yellow arrow) and pull the sensor out (red arrow) Use care not to damage the two small wires going into the connection.

Installation is simply plugging the new sensor back in and reinstalling it back into its mount. Of course, you need to reinstall the bumper.
