The sensor is usually either postioned on the lower edge of the nearside front bumper or just under the front numberplate - again attached to the bumper. The connecting block might have become disconnected, but more than likely age, weather, or a parking accident has damaged it.

Sorry, forgot to add, a new sensor will cost less than a tenner to replace. £5.50 + vat from

Hey, i have just fitted a Nokia handsfree kit to my Corsa van and have come across this same problem when re-installing the radio, everything works fine except the temp reading, i know the sensor isnt faulty as it was working prior to radio battery disconnection, Any ideas how i can reset this display, Cheers

Is the whole display blank, or just the temp display not working?

First thing I would do is backtrack your work and double check all connections are firmy made and sockets / plugs are tightly connected together.

Temp reads "--", all other displays are fine, only wires i nipped were the live to Radio and Earth to radio to which i added live and earth on handsfree, everything works fine and i even disconnected handsfree wires and reconnected radio to see if handsfree interfered and the reading stayed at "--" ??? Disconnected and then reconnected sensor this morning, display still reads "--" ??

Hi did you ever find a solution to this? Mine has just gone wrong after working successfully with my new radio for 11 months, I have replaced it to no effect. The date also doesn't display without the push of a button, not sure if this helps anyone diagnose the issue?! I look forward to your replies.

The ambient temperature sensor will have failed. I used to work in a Vauxhall dealership and I've changed hundreds of them. They're located under the front bumper on the left hand side.
