Someone backed into the front of your car gently, probably by mistake,
causing no visible damage, but the ambient temperature sender behind the
license plate was affected. Many owners relocate the new sender inside the
engine compartment, behind the left headlight and splice the wire to the
original one. P.
As the outside temperature display's primary purpose is to warn the driver
of freezing/icy conditions on the roadway, try to keep the sensor out of the
engine bay where it may erroneously read the warmer air.
