I"m wonder if anyone else has had actually an concern with this. I purchased a 2019 Laramie last week. The outdoor waiting temp was reading 84 as soon as it to be 27 levels out. Ns took it earlier to the original dealer that pulled a P0071 - ambient Senor Failed. Castle didn"t have actually the sensor in stock, so i took it to a neighborhood dealer this week. They replaced the sensor and it had actually the same issue. Castle then replaced the whole driver"s next mirror. That is now reading 38 through an actual temperature the 30, so closer, however not accurate. I"m pulling the really outdoor temps from the weather data. The dealer is now checking with technology support.I couldn"t find much in the method of others having this problem on this forum, but I"ve read the past history of electrical concerns with the 19. Needless to say, 3 the end of the an initial 7 days in the shop is no making me happy.

All of the above over the previous week. Once I picked it increase today, it had been sitting outside in the sun. It review 45 through an outdoor temp of 33. Ns drove it around for 10 minutes and it dropped come 40 and also didn"t drop any type of further for the next 10 minutes.

My ambient temp sensor will read high too, especially if the is in the sun. This day it to be 75 degrees and also sunny, went to my truck leaving work-related at 4 PM and it said it was 100 levels outside. I have a 17 mile drive home, around 12 of that is ~ above the interstate. Even by the moment I had actually been travel at 70 mph for practically 12 miles the exterior temp just dropped come 83. Steering though some shaded areas on the second roads to my house it did drop to 79, however the the end temp sensor I have actually at the house was analysis 73 - for this reason it absolutely seems to review high.

Ambient Temp Sensor is mounted to a removable dashboard on the bottom the the driver"s next rear see mirror.To accessibility the sensor, the panel is quickly removed (carefully, the course) through a level blade driver or equivalent.Steve
