F150 OUTSIDE TEMP GAUGE

2004 Ford F-150

2004 Ford F150 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 35000 miles

My outside Temp Gauge that shows a digital reading on my cluster is 20 degrees off. Evertything else works on my cluster. Is there any step by step instructions to fix this? Or do I need to replace something. Any help is appreciated.

Usually when the reading is that far off, the sensor is bad. It is a small plastic sensor just behind the front grill. It's real easy to replace, just unplug it and plug the new one in. It may take a few miles of driving for the system to readjust, but that is the fix a majority of the time.
