Recently I had the headliner in my truck replaced and since then the automatic A/C seems to be too cold. You have to turn it upwards of 85 or more and even then it seems like it doesn't vary the speed like it use to. Is it possible that device in the ceiling headliner above the driver's head is the issue? I have no idea what that device does but someone mentioned they thought it was what allowed the auto A/C to detect the inside temperature but wasn't sure. I don't know if they plugged it back in or if it's bad so thought i'd ask an expert in case that was the issue. Thanks for any help you can give.

Good afternoon,

When they replaced the headliner, they may have either damaged the sensor or used too much insulation so the sensor does not read correctly.

I posted the procedure with some pictures for you.
