Good Job Chris! It seems like once you have a vehicle with it, its hard to do without it. My Silverado has the temperature mirror, and when we bought the TB without it, I knew that eventually it would have to be upgraded. There's only one thing I would still like to know. In my part of NC, I have seen extremes down to 12 degrees and up to 107 degrees. I would like to see what 9 degrees looks like, is it 9 or 09? I'm sure somebody here already knows, especially the Canadian members! Congratulations again!

Mike

temp sensor

Have had the same problem with my 2002 envoy. Went out and found the sensor where you all said it would be and shot it with a can of air and it has worked fine since. Thanks for your help !!!

I'll be doing this soon. Mirror should be here tomorrow. Did the dealership just have the parts on-hand or did they have to be ordered. Gmpartsdirect has the Sensor for 10.95 + another 10 for shipping.

Sorry to bump an old topic. Thanks to silverunicorn for pointing me in the right direction.

The dealer had everything I needed, but were really confused about the connectors to go into the wiring harness, which is why I got those elsewhere. I will send you some.

Don't forget, you need the sensor AND the connector for the sensor. I had to make 2 trips If I recall correctly, my sensor was $12 and the conenctor was $19. Pricey yes, but you can not do it without that connector.

The link to the Delphi pdfs are down. When I go to the dealership, what part numbers should I give them. The sensor part number I've got, but for the connector???

Sorry, I lost the part number. But I can tell you what to ask for, I didn't have a number when I went to get mine, either. The connector you are seeking is attached to a inexpensive sub-wire harness. When I bought my connector, it was listed in the documentation as an 'ambient air temperature sensor harness'. Yes, you need the connector for your air sensor. The matching connector to that comes with a pigtail harness. (It is sold with approximately 12 inches of wire already attached. This way, all you have to do is add more wire to lengthen it to get where you are going.)

When you attach the other end of these wires to the connector up on the fender, look back at the earlier posts in this thread. Those part numbers are what I used to get the correct parts (metripack connectors). All dealers keep a repair kit with these connectors. They are behind the counter and look like little compartmentalized bins like NAPA keeps o-rings and small parts in.

Do a search on metripack connectors so you can get an idea how they look when correctly installed. The cable seals are an essential part so they do not allow water infiltration into the connector. If you have any questions about it, just pm me. I'll be glad to answer any questions you have. My install turned out great, it looks more factory than factory does. I used wire loom to cover any exposed wire. Just look back at the earlier posts, there are some good tips there. Hang in there!!

The connector description coupled with the sensor part number should do it.

Thanks
