Outside temp sensor stuck
Both on the overhead display:
Mpg keeps resetting, starting at 0.0
Outside temp sensor stuck on one number
Any idea how to fix this?

That may take a dealer flash to reset it. I don't think you can do it with the user controls. Have you cycled through all the options you have and tried to reset them???

TSB 08-026-06 REV A addresses this issue.

Flash: Overhead Console Temperature Reading Inaccurate Or Dome Lamp Turns Off Too
This bulletin involves selectively erasing and reprogramming the Cabin Compartment
Node (CCN) with new software.
2006 (DR/DH/D1) Ram Truck
NOTE: This bulletin applies to vehicles built on or before May 30, 2006 (MDH
The vehicle operator may notice that if a vehicle door is left open for longer than 20
seconds the illuminated interior (dome) lamps will turn off.
The vehicle operator may describe that the ambient temperature first displayed in the
overhead console is not accurate (displays -40C or -40F), when the ignition switch is
turned to the “On” position, then slowly updates to the outside ambient temperature as the
vehicle is driven.

So, a flash is needed.

All Right! I got one right! 1 outta 10 ain't bad...LMAO

Gotta start somewhere, right MD?

Thanks, so this is a dealership problem for them to fix?
What's a flash?
Is there anything that I can do?
Yes i did go through all of the settings an reset them all. I even thought about disconnecting the battery for a hard resett. And would the location of the temp sensor be located in front between the grill and the radiator? Wouldnt the sensor itself be bad?

A flash is a reprogramming of the related module with updated software and needs to be done by the dealer. The sensor is located near the left headlight and, yes, it could be bad.

My overhead temp console was stuck or frozen on 130 F. I disconnected the battery for a second and reconnected wala.........the overhead is back to normal. Good old "hard reset"
