S Type outside air temprature incorrect

Hi there,

I have a 2004 S type diesel (2.7 twin turbo).

This morning when I started the car the temp gauge told me it was 3C, of
which I beleive this is correct. However after driving a coupld of hundred
yards the temperature started to rise... it went up to 20C...... it is
certainly not 20C in the uk....

I was wondering if the sennsor had become dislodged or something blocking
the air over the sensor as the original temperature recorded was correct ???

Any ideas or does anyone know where this sensor is located so I can check it
?

Regards

David Marshall

According to my CD Manual the sensor is located on the power assist
cooling bracket near the radiator. Sorry, the illustration doesn't
really give me much of an idea where that is. You should be able to
see it in that vicinity. A rough approximation would be a sparkplug
shaped attachment with a set of wire leads.

Hope this helps.

David
