      AC blows hot b/c outside temperature reads -39

      Afternoon everyone.

      SO, I have a 2013 Dart Aero with 143K miles on her. She is currently at the dealership to have her AC looked at. The on screen temp reads -39 degrees and the AC blows hot; when the temperature is correct, the AC blows cold. Dodge has told me this is a problem with a wire, not the barometer sensor, and is located in the front bumper. Anyone else had this issue?


      I also had the black screen, heat wont turn off issue last week... removed the negative cable and that seems to be fixed.

      I also have the upside down rear view camera... dealership said I needed a new camera for around 300$, told them no thank you. I'll def try the update to the Uconnect... thanks for that post!



      Thanks bunches!

      The ambient temp sensor is probably failing or it is a wiring problem.

      I think you can turn the camera upside down to make the image right side up. It's in the rear center lamp module.

      I had the same issue so I replaced the ambient temp sensor but that didn't fix the problem. Dealer ended up finding the problem to be in the wiring and fixed it.
