You could be right and I can't speak for caveman but the one I'm referring to is between the sliding rear window switch and garage door openers. The console light is in a different place, it's in the same recessed area as the RW switch. If needed i'll try and get a photo of it in the morning.

You are right, the light is between the map lights and the rear slider switch. I've owned two of these in the last three years and I never really paid any attention to that sensor but here is what it is from the service manual:

The infrared sensor detects thermal radiation emitted by the driver and front passenger seat occupants and surroundings and converts its data into a linear pulse width modulated (PWM) output signal which is read by the automatic temperature control (ATC) A/C-heater control. The ATC A/C-heater control uses the infrared sensor data as one of the inputs necessary to automatically control the interior cabin temperature levels. By using thermal radiation (surface temperature) measurement, rather than an air temperature measurement, the ATC heating-A/C system is able to adjust itself to the comfort level as perceived by the occupants. This allows the ATC system to compensate for other ambient conditions affecting comfort levels, such as solar heat gain or evaporative heat loss. The ATC system logic responds to the infrared sensor message by calculating and adjusting the air flow temperature and air flow rate needed to properly obtain and maintain the selected comfort level temperature of the occupants. The A/C-heater control continually monitors the infrared sensor circuits, and will store diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) for any problem it detects.


The infrared sensor is diagnosed using a scan tool (Refer to 28 - DTC-Based Diagnostics/HVAC - Diagnosis and Testing) .


The infrared sensor cannot be adjusted or repaired and must be replaced if inoperative or damaged.

Thanks for that info. Interesting way to measure the temperature. Hopefully it works as advertised.
Cant really say if the ATC in these trucks work any better than any other car/truck I ever had, but I dont have any HVAC complaints on these.

Except for the blower motor noise at low speed, they really should cover the motor up with a sound deadening panel - but thats being picky.
