Im going to be installing a Saturn Vue rear view mirror into my new car (02 Mustang GT). I have the temp sensor from an Impala that im going to be using for the temperature. Now my question is where should the sensor be installed. Does it have to be in a spot where it will get air flow while im driving? or can it be installed somewhere that doesnt get that much air flow?

I found the perfect spot, but it is really low to the ground and is visible from the lower grill and I dont want the elements (rain, etc) to ruin the sensor.

Thanks

I think the sensor is digitally read by the Impala's BCM, so I don't know that it will work like you're hoping. To answer your question, the Impala mounts it behind the grille in front of the radiator.

The input from the sensor goes directly into the DIC on the Impala (at least on the 00-05's).

Other than that...it's in front of the radiator on the support on the drivers side, near the headlight...somewhat out of the airflow, but fairly close to it.

I didn't feel like busting out the wiring diagrams, but that's good to know. His plan at least has a chance then. Smile
