Hi Guys,

New poster and not the most mechanically inclined guy, but am willing to try. I have a 2004 Saab 9-5 Aero. Here's the issue:

The temperature reading on the LCD panel usually starts off reading the correct temperature and my ACC reacts accordingly. However, in warm weather, the temperature reading drops at a rate of 1 deg C every 30 seconds until it reaches -19. My ACC reacts accordingy, and this is happening in +30 deg C weather, so no A/C.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help.

That is very odd. The outside temp sensor can be had for about $15 here in the States. For that price, buying a new sensor is where I'd start.

Thanks for the reply. Would you mind relaying instructions on where the outdoor temp sensor is and how I would go about replacing it?

It is located in the bottom part of the front bumper, dead centre.

Once you find, you easily figure out how to replace it.

Ha, thanks JSaab. Unfortunately guys, I looked and still can't identify it. I looked through the air-intake on the bottom part of the bumper and also looked at the air intake just below the hood (where the saab emblem is) and can't see anything that looks like what was described.

Could anyone be kind enough to post a picture of what it looks like and exactly where I could find it.

Sorry for the ignorance...

You need to look at the very bottom of the front bumper, under where the licence plate would be on a UK car.
