Ambient Temperature -22 Deg F

Recommended Posts

When I bought this 01, GS430 I noticed that outside temperature reading was -22oF. I found out that wires connecting to ambient temperature sensor were cut and hanging and no ambient temperature sensor present either. When I called many Lexus dealership looking for the connector lot of them in my area told me that I can not buy just the connector that goes into the ambient temperature sensor (which is available and recognized by parts people easily). Some of them suggested that I change the wiring harness which cost about $2000.00 But few know that you can find the connectors and the other little part that goes with it for a total not more than $30.00. I will update the part and part number soon once I am successful in installing and get the right ambient temperature.

Finally I got around checking the temp sensor and the connector. That part number for the Housing connector is 90980-11070 and the Part Number for the Ambient Temperature sensor is 88790-22131 based off the tag on the package. Of course you need two wires with connectors at the end which Parts people gave me. It works!
