50's damn near time to turn the A/C on.Racefla said:I think I read somewhere that it uses the outside air temp to decide what to do.
I also have had the problem where the temp sticks and takes it's time adjusting to the OT.
Last night we were at a ball game till 9:15pm. I hit the remote start as we stood around talking. Outside temp was low 50's. (Hey we freez our a$$ off down here below 60
When we finally got in the damn A/C was blowing full blast & the O/T was showing 82 degrees ??? The wife had a fit & I got the heat working. After we got going a few miles the O/T finally came down to 50.
I will make the complaint to service dept and hope that enough complaints will get something corrected. Others on this forum have had their temp's stick.
A number of Saturn Outlook owners have reported this issue with the outside temperature sensor. Unfortunately, the Saturn Fans forum is down at the moment (again; I'm spoiled by this board and its stable software).GaryB said:I've noticed a couple times when the outside temp indicator was way off and took a few minutes to get in tune with reality. Happened when the car had been running and was warmed through, then parked for and hour or so. I particularly recall once recently when it read 80 when it was 54 outside (per a nearby outdoor display sign) and that's what it finally showed 2-3 minutes later. I theorized that residual engine heat had confused the temp sensor, but have not verified that as the cause. I did not use remote start on that occasion, but suspect I would have got a/c instead of heat. Whenever I used remote start in my car port, the HVAC has done the right thing, but the car has always been sitting for many hours and is well soaked to the outside temperature.
