ext temp gauge; bonkers

today, my Clio told me it 0degrees outside. A bit later, it told me it was -0degrees outside.... to minus figure or not?

Does what?

A few months ago I had to have a new exterior temperature sensor because when it was about 15 degrees it was showing 32!!

Wish it was 32 now!! It is very sunny but very cold up here in Scotland (Edinburgh).

yeah it does minus! Mine was at -1 the other day! It just doesnt show the decimal point, as in -0.5 etc

........its only a toy for show tho init! cant expect to predict the weather on it can we lol! Its strange tho, when i get in my van, i find myself lookin for it on a cold morning, so i guess it is useful in certain weather!!!!! boys and their toys! (and girls)
 


Mine does go past -0 its just that i meant its weird cos surely it should be either 0 or -1?

Mine was at -4 this morn! And the bloody thing stalled, again!

Mine hasnt got up to 0 lately so I couldnt tell you. It seems to be stuck around -3. I seem to remember a -0 reading though....
 
  VW Potato


ok, so Im getting both -0 and just 0 without the -. It reads -0 after it has read -1. Oh, and I got -3 yesterday (coldest so far was in my Golf last year which read -8!)

I do find it useful - flashing away at 3deg reminds you to be cautious of ice (im sure you are anyway!)

lol, when i first got the car i thought it was broken..............i said to myself im sure it never flashed before!!! lol. I thought it might do somethin spectacular at 0 or minus, but it didnt! Ah well............. lol

I had -9 in Belgium on wednesday, I was on the motorway coming back from Brugge so I guess it was "wind chill factor" or something like that.:eek:
 
  172 sport,

  172 sport,

Yogi,

Lorries are a gas arent they? Takes a fair bit of skill, and when you are racing, nobody else knows!

  172 sport,

-6 in Scotland,

Isnt -0 actually from 0 to -0.5

and 0 is 0 to 0.5 or somthing like that ?

oh and wind chill doesnt affect inanamite objects.
 
  H22A7 Accord Type R


yeah _KDF............it just doesnt show the decimals 0 to 0.9 before it goes to 1 and vice versa, but all we see is -0 0 or 1 or -1 or -2 or +30 lol! etc etc
 
  Clio 197


Whilst changing my plugs and leads the temp went down to -11 and during my little drive through the country side it went to -12.

Can you say cold fingers?

I wish they were numb! They hurt like hell. Still functioned though, but I wouldnt want to do it every day.

Toes were nice and cosy with wooly socks and hiking boots.
