Seth-Tabitha Hagen

Most cars have the ambient temperature sensor mounted in front of the radiator, between the radiator and the front bumper. I am not sure exactly where the sensor is located on your Camry, but I would look through the grille opening and under the front bumper for a small (1-2 inch long) sensor connected to a 2-wire connector. Often these sensors get damaged in minor (parking lot) collisions or get torn off on the concrete blocks at the front of parking spaces.
