Bad ambient temperature readings

Hello, are any of you experiencing false/bad ambient temperature readings on 10g civic? (type r)

I see the right temperature just when car is cold, but after some time of driving it goes incredibly up. Probably heatsoaking from front radiator or what, I noticed also when turning on AC it goes even higher (it shows me about 55 C degree)

Yes mine was giving some inflated reading well after 10pm when outside temp had dropped.

I am assuming you mean the outdoor temp sensor, which is mounted in the front bumper?

Sounds to me that is more the the "under hood" temperature if you ask me...

Could be an incorrect positioned sensor (if the bumper has been removed and replaced at some point), or a buggered sensor..

Don't think there is a "under hood" temperature setting on the 10G CTR that I am aware of..

I have noticed that it appears to require a little time to stabilise - a bit like the SatNav issue!!

I've not spent too much time on it, so cannot relate to specifics - whether it's direct sunlight, heatsoak from the engine, etc ...

Generally, after 2 - 4 minutes' running it appears to be more-or-less of the correct order I reckon.

I'll have to look at that. Not noticed anything odd so far.
