HUH???

Wait, do you mean the internal cabin air filter? The filter used for air coming into the car through the vent system?

If so, that one is accessible by pushing down the sides of the glove box and removing the cover to the filter tray.

Can you start by telling us the problem you're trying to solve... not the solution you think you need?

The sensor is right behind the front bumper on the driver side. It's clipped to the airbox (or whatever it's called) for the ecu at the bottom. Mine got screwed up after the accident, one of the wire was loose, so a little solder and electrical tape and everything is fine now.

I have a 2001, but it should still be in the same location for 02 and up I hope.


i only went here because i needed a quick answer for fixing the digital temp display on our climate control.. mines reads - -

Ahhh... you meant the outside temperature sensor. Yes... that is on the drivers side, right behind the bumper, attached to the bottom of the ECU "container".

We gotcha now.

So everything is fixed? Awesome!

If rep was used correctly, you would have the most.
It's a shame really. Well, I will try to help.

it seems like its blocked by a crash bar... is there any easier access to it? i think i know what you are seeing.. its around the area where you plug in the fogs.. (under the driver side headlightish..)\


look at my profile picture and tell me if you see something wrong with taht connector? maybe im missing a cable? or something?

There are a few plugs in the stock harness that are not used... is that one of them?

Kinda hard to tell from the low res camera phone picture.

Let me see if I can get under a car tonight...
