Default Outside air temp is wrong

Does any have the problem of the Outside air temp reading wrong. Mine seems to be out by about 7 Celsius. The truck says -21 when it about -14. Any ideas or just bring to dealer and have them there is no problem. Where is the temp sensor located.

Mine seems to be out also. I wonder if some how it's giving actual temperature with the wind chill.

What are you comparing the truck reading to that makes you think it is wrong?

I compare it to the house thermometer, the trailer thermometer, what the radio says, what the TV says, 7 Celsius or 13 Fahrenheit is big difference.

Mine is actually very close... much closer than my old truck (which was off by 3 degrees F).
This is within 1 degree F (1/2 degree C)

Mine has been off since I bought it. Three weeks now. Yes it is also off by about 6-12 Deg Centigrade. Maybe it has something to do with the cold? Or ours just dont like the Alberta Weather. LOL w/OP.

I am sure mine is off too. It's currently -21c now, and it is showing -31c.

I'll bring it in to the dealer to have them look at it.
