Why would the outside air temperature display in my car read way higher than actual outside air temperature


Asked by Jan 05, 2015 at 04:45 PM about the 2009 Volkswagen Jetta

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The car displays a much higher than ambient outside air temperature, the electric fan
runs continuous if the ignition is on and the hvac system is acting weird. What could
cause these symptoms?
