Temp sensor for overhead console

Temp sensor for overhead console

Postby OKSE [OP] » February 25th 2010, 9:45pm

Hei,

where are the sensor for outside temp to overhead console sitting?
I have installed a overhead console and get no temp reading, only 0C.
I have a 96 astro and the console was from a 98 Astro.

OC means open circuit.. The sensor is in front of the rad on the bar in the middle.

Black and Dark Green/Black. Located at center of core support in front of radiator. Goes through convenience center C207 plug. Wires D5 and E. Thats basically just a spot to plug in to seperate harnesses and make the connections. Its under the dash by the fuse panel.

Are the vans without the overhead console already pre-wired?

Not sure on that but if you look above where the horns are at see if there is another connector dangling. That would be for the outside air sensor.

Here is a pic. Grill removed. Temp sensor in place. I believe it is a late 90s model. Jim

My Base 98' had the forward outside temp sensor wiring and connector already. The connector with the black and green w/black stripe was taped to the horn wiring behind the grill. I still need to pull my head liner and see if the other half of the wiring that goes to the over head console is there as well. G.B.
