Default Anyone having problems with....

Their outdoor temperature sensor? Mine is usually anywhere from 7-12 degrees off the outside temperature. Last time I took it down to the dealership (for Line-X) I told them about it. When I came back they said that a "sensor bulb" was faulty and they replaced it and it should be "good to go". I think they were blowing a little sunshine up my tail because nothing has changed. Anyone know if this can be re-calibrated on my own or do I need to go back down there?

Also having issues with the center console not closing when I just drop it. I have to use some force to get it to click in, so I might have to take it down for that, too.

Found a mess up on the paint towards the front. I'm afraid I can see the fight brewing on that one and who says it's gonna look better once "fixed"? It looks like something was on the truck like a fleck of something and they just sprayed right over it and left it there.

I guess in the grand scheme of things these are all very minor issues and I am very happy with my purchase. I just don't like going back down there because I always feel like I'm the bad guy for bringing this crap up (not to mention I'm pretty busy as it is without dealing with them).

my temp shows off too but its hard to tell if your comparing temp to the news they may get their readings from somewhere else, in a city spread out as much as the one im in it can snow in one part, and sunny in another. Or if you have ever rode a motorcycle you know how much temp changes just by riding around and feeling the air.

Yeah, I'm kind of a weather nerd and have a pretty expensive weather station set-up at my house and I also monitor other stations in my area.

If it was 1 or 2 degrees I wouldn't even sweat it but it's telling me it's 23 degrees sometimes when it's actually a couple degrees above freezing. Naturally, that slows me down a little until I figure out what the real temperature is.

I have an issue with mine. It seems to read at least 5 to 7 degrees lower. I will be getting my 1st oil change next week, have them check it then.

Same here. This morning my thermometer outside said 6 degrees. Started up the truck and it said -4.

Please keep us updated on what the dealership says, or does to correct it.

Thanks,

RJ

No problems with the temp, but my console also requires a gentle nudge to latch closed.

It is not just you on the center console issue. I just finished test driving four or five 1500s and making my purchasing of a new 1500 yesterday. I did notice that some center consoles of my test drives did not close right if you just drop shut em. Like you, I had to put some heat on it going down and slap it shut. The truck I did buy, does not have that issue. So something on yours needs adjusted imo.

Wow, guess I'm not alone in these issues. Maybe they'll issue a recall notice at some point in the near future. Was hoping there was a way to back door the temp. calibration...

Ive never really paid that much attention to it, as long as my truck is warm i really don't care what the temp is. Guess im on the old theory of stick your arm outside, if its wet its raining, if its cold it cold, if its covered in snow its snowing and if its hot its hot
