On a 2000 Durango, the MAF sensor is known as an "ambient air temperature" sensor. Follow your air intake to the manifold. It's sticking out of the right side, under the manifold and looks like this: Good Luck.

Try over in the ceiling over the drivers head and it looks like a mic for the onstar system.

Ambient refers to the temperature of the surrounding air, i.e not at parking lot level etc. Ambient means the temperature not being effected by mechanical means, like AC or any heat source. example, if you serve a wine at ambient temperature, it is not a specific number it is what ever the room is at the time.

I have a 2004 Trailblazor and the sensor is just to the right of the hood latch behind the front grill near the top. It is a small box like shape with two wires plugged into it.

It is located on the front of the radiator. If you look through the grill (at the radiator) you can see it. It is just off center toward the passenger side. It is a very small black piece of plastic. It looks like there is a short straw coming off the top of it.

Like all amphibians, the body temperature of a frog will be very close to the ambient temperature.

If you have a 1989-1995 model 325i, the ambient temperature sensor should be part # 65818350779. Best way to see a picture is do a Google image search on the part number. It will look like a plastic piece, black on the probe portion, yellow on the plug-in portion, with 2 round electrical connector pins.

should be located on the thermostat housing like most cars. i have also seen them located on the front side of the radiator it should be cliped on the radiator.

The outside temperature sensor on the 2005 Chevrolet Silverado pickup is located in the top of the dash next to the windshield. Look for an area that looks like a speaker but is shaped like a triangle.

Th ambient air temp sensor tells the car what the temp is and regulates the climate control to keep you cool or warm.If it goes out and it can read the out side temp as 30 below and not allow your air to even work. I just replaced mine on a 2003 bravada it was very easy to replace and the sensor was like 4 bucks

A smoke alarm or temperature sensor will also detect quick increases in ambient temperature. If your smoke detector is going off for no reason, it may be too close to a heat source like a stove, bathroom or furnace room, or it may be defective and need servicing.

the air intake temp sensor is incorporated in with your mass air sensor , it should be located in the upper center /it looks like a little plastic tear drop. hop thi helps!

For the coolant level it is usually located in the coolant reservoir. For the coolant temperature it is usually located on the engine close to the thermostat or on a cylinder head. Need more info like year, make and model to help you more.

It is screwed into the side of the upper portion of your intake manifold , on the drivers side of the engine , and has an electrical connection to it . Ford refers to it as an air charge temperature sensor .

Mostly like this:Summer H50 L30Winter H30 L5Spring and fall H40 L20

Check your ambient light sensor. In American vehicles I have only seen the sensor on top of the dashboard. It looks like a little bubble sticking up.

Frogs, like all amphibians, are cold-blooded and can't maintain body heat. They're basically always at ambient temperature. So when ambient temperature drops too low for them to function, their only option is to hibernate until it gets warmer.
