Re: Whistling cabin temp sensor
The cabin temperature sensor is mounted in that grille. This is used by the Climate Control to control the interior temperature.
Mounted further in the dash, behind the trip computer, is a small electric motor and fan assembly and this has a flexible "accordian" tube to the sensor. This fan draws the air through the grill and over the sensor.
The fan and moter run constantly when the Climate Control is on.
There may be a problem with the fan unit (e.g. bearings in the motor).
