I know the feeling. ?It's a shame my first post is about a problem, but oh well
?. ?It doesn't detract from how much I love my Av.
My mirror is also messed up. ?Here's what I noted.
I don't believe that reading the engine area temp is the problem. ?I previously had a Yukon and I understand where you are coming from on that. But this is different in the symptoms. ?
When I start my AV in the morning it's "all cold" and the temp immediately goes to 98 or 95 deg. ?After about 10 minutes and the mood is right the temp "might" go to the correct outside temperature. ?
We took the AV on a long trip and it took it over an hour to finally come down to the correct temp.
When it's above 50F it seems OK. ?
Outside temp below 50F it will read 95-98deg., If you ?change it to Celsius it reads fairly close to actual (I don't want to see my temp in C so that's no good
I don't think it's the sensor. ?If the sensor was wrong then it would read incorrect when changed to Celsius. I think it's the mirror and that is what I am going to ask to have replaced.
When it does read below 35F it says IEE not ICE
Compass is fine
Talked with the salesman when I picked up the truck (it was like this when I test drove it). Said they reset it and it was OK. ?Day after I picked it up it was 98F (actually 34F). ?Talked to the salesman and told him it was still doing it, he stated that a gentleman with a truck had the same problem and if I wanted he could be the guinea pig (to which I agreed) since they hadn't gotten ahold on it yet. I would rather them poke around on someone elses and learn than mine.
Any info would definately be appreciated. ?I will also keep you up to date as to what fixes my problem.
ALSO: Does anyone know where the sensor is that makes the mirror dim? Is it in the mirror? Is it on the back? ?Where is it
Sorry about the length but just thought I'd give all the facts on my temp sensor.
