A month or so ago, I had my AC compressor worked on. When I drove away I noticed that the temp was no longer displaying. I didnt care and was just happy to get the car back. Come today, the temp, out of nowhere, began to show -40 degrees. As you might have guessed, this has now caused the AC to blow warm air. I think the dealership forgot to reconnect the OAT when working on the AC.

I THINK I located where the sensor is, but I have no clue where to check to see if the wire is disconnected. Where do I look to see if the wire is disconnected?

If it was completely disconnected, it shouldn't read anything. Get some water in it and it may conduct enough for the -40 reading.

Just a follow up on this for future reference. The sensor wire was disconnected from the sensor. I went in from the wheel well to get to the sensor and re attached the wire. It was kind of a pain, but I eventually got it.

When I first turned on the car, after re-connection, it went back to showing -40 degrees, where it previously showed nothing. When I started the car this morning, the display began showing the correct temp and my AC went back to blowing cold air.

Thanks for the help guys!

Sorry, forgot to mention there's a re-calibration time period after reconnecting. So it won't work right away, but it does straighten itself out.
