Default 2009 Bipper Outside Temperature reading Incorrect

My 2009 1.4 Bipper is reading the outside temperature wrong. It is happening a lot lately, some morning in the last few weeks its reading 1/2 degrees when it could be nearly 12/13 degrees out, same during the day it could reading 30 degrees instead of 19/20 degree...

What im wondering is where is the temperature gauge located in the bippers as its prob a fualty guage..

any help would be appreciated.....

Hi, not sure about new(ish) models but on earlier Pugs/Clitroens the sensor is the little black bump protruding from the bottom of the passenger wing mirror.

If this is where it is, its an easy swap with a second hand part and a couple of connectors....

Thanks for that, found it under the drivers side mirror on mine, now to go track down a 2nd hand sensor....

Don't waste time on second hand parts. A European Peugeot dealer sells new ones on Ebay (albeit listed for the 406) but for under 7.

ok guys so i got the temp sensor and installed it this evening but the sensor is now reading 49 degrees, it was at 55 degrees but after taking the van for a spin it dropped to 49......

Should the sensor calibrate straight away or take a bit of time to set or is there something wrong with it??

I would give it a bit of time to adjust, also check the menu to see whether the temp is set to degrees C or degrees F.

after putting 2 sensors into it now and both read around from between 48 deg to 55 deg, couldn't be possible that both were faulty could it...

if i put the original back i get a near normal temp, anywhere from 5 to 10 out...

Anyone any ideas why im getting way wrong readings on the new sensors?

Bad electrical connection?

I wont think so, as the original faulty sensor reads a lot lower than the new ones i got....would a main dealer supply just the sensor do you think?
