Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace the ambient air temperature sensor. This sensor is used from 1979 to 2012, but this procedure on the video covers 2004 to 2012. The items you'll need for this is a new ambient air temperature sensor from 1AAuto.com and a flat blade screwdriver.

Using a flat blade screwdriver, pry out the one tab on this side and lift up on the sensor. Then, either using your finger nails or another flat blade screwdriver, pry out the other tab while still lifting up with the other screwdriver, and then you pull that sensor free.

On the left is the old ambient air temperature sensor; on the right is the new one from 1A Auto. You can see they are identical and look exactly the same.

Take your new sensor, line up the tabs, and push it right back down into place. Make sure it's all the way down. Then you're all set.
