Outside Temp & Sunlight Sensor
I am having an issue with my 2000 S500. I have searched the forums and read the stickypedia for everything written on these topics.
My outside temperature display in the cluster is completely blank and the climate control diagnostics report that it is -40 outside instead of +85 here in Texas.
I replaced the temperature sensor in the lower left bumper - still nothing..
I followed the wires until they disappeared.. No damage can be seen.
My sunlight sensor has also just been replaced due to a 1270 error in the climate control diagnostics. I reset and ran the scan again and I still have the same error.
I checked the fuse charts and neither device is mentioned so I assume that they are not fused items but just connected to the vehicle data bus.
My question is whether these two items get power from or are connected to the data bus in the same location so I have a place to start digging?
Thanks in advance
