    TJ Mirror temperature sensor location

    My mirror displays the direction and temperature but the temperature is about 20 degrees too high. Anyone know where or how I can locate the sensor and maybe relocate it? I'm thinking it's too close to the hot bits somewhere.

    I know it should be located between the radiator and grill but I don't see it.

    Does it stay too high or does it correct itself after you get down the road a ways?
    The xj I used to have would read real high if it set in the sun but a mile or so down the road it would be correct. For whatever reason my black jk only shows a little high and corrects itself sooner. I don't know where they hide the sensor.

    Yeah, past Jeeps I've had did that as well. When you first start it up, it shows high until you drive it a while. Mine is always about 20 high no matter how long I've driven it.

    I'm trying to remember, I think my xj had a setting for celsius. It wouldn't be set on that would it?

    If it was on Celsius, it would be reading 25-30 degrees instead of over 100.
