Outside Air Temp reading all over the place

As the title suggests. My outside Air temp reading is all over the place, it starts at normal temp, then slowly rises to 110F and back down to 90 etc.

Its only 70F out today.

Anything I can check for on my own or is it just a replaceable part I have to have the dealer check?



Thanks

Go to the dealer if under warranty. If not, change the temperature sensor, which is located on the front left lower air intake. The car's left not your left.

The sensor is a protruding rubber-like antennae. Get a replacement from ecs tuning or turnermotorsport.
