OUTSIDE TEMPERATURE INDICATOR ON A 08 OUTLOOK

The outside temperature indicator on my 08 Outlook is off anywhere from 10 to 20 degrees. can it be reset by a dealer. Just replaced the low beam bulb and wiring harness on on the left front of my vehicle. Fortunately, it was covered by the warranty

I would check to be sure the temp sensor hasn't broken loose from it's original mounting position (behind the front fascia, below the grille/driver side). This happened to a VW Passat I owned at one time.

Search the other Lambda forums....being off seems to be a fairly common problem due to the location of the sensor. I think that there may be a TSB to relocate it to a more accurate location.

I had this done to my 08' last year and it seemed to fix the temp reading issue.
