my 2007 jeep compass outside temp. display has been stuck on 81 degrees for several days and the temp outside is 97 degrees. is there a way to correct this. -
Answer 1
It is likely a bad sensor. Check with Jeep for a recall and if none, replace the sensor. It is about $15-$35. and unplugs and plugs back in. Located at front of vehicle on radiator support OR front bumper cover. Good Luck! Joe R. -
