EXTERNAL TEMPERATURE SENSOR.

I believe the external temperature reading sensor is not working on my S-type. Think it is located under the very front of the car under a cover/panel. The external temperature shows in two places on the car info system, as far as I am aware. One on the clock binnacle, which shows as a yellow snowflake type yellow light when the external temperature fall to 5 degrees  C, the other on the central facial showing external temperature amongst settings for the Air Conditioning etc. At this location it shows external ambient temperature in C.

Can anyone confirm or otherwise that both of these temperature readings are made by the same sensor located at the front underside of the car . 

Many thanks and Regards, John.

external temp sensor is behind the front bumper in the  middle, internal temp sensor is on the centre console right at the top middle above the touch screen

later cars had the ice warning on the dash, preface lift did not

Thanks, I am aware of where the above sensors are but am wondering about external temperatures sensors. Do they both get their reading from the sensor underneath the car at the front.

I.E. Does the frost light on the dash and the external temperature on the centre console, both get their reading from the sensor at the the front underside of the car. (Facelift model).

My concern is that just lately in these hot weather temperatures, the external reading on the centre console has appeared to be extremely low considering what we all know as having had very high external temperatures. It has only been showing around 15 - 17 degrees C.

Many thanks and Regards, John

Many thanks. I will obtain a new sensor and swop it over, hopefully to sort the readings back to normal ?????

Thanks and Best Wishes, John
