    Hi there,
    I just picked up a new jeep and had the 22 series plow
    put on it sat, everything with the plow works fine,
    prob I am having when the plow is hooked up the jeep's
    outside temp gage is off by 30-40 deg it says it 71 out
    but it is really like 30, when i unplug everything, and take
    the plow off, the temp gage seems to work fine ? any ideas
    on what might be causing this ? I don't even know where
    the temp pickup sensor is located

    Thanks
    Mark

    The plow blocks air flow and effects the ambient temperature sensor

    It does this on many of the trucks that have temp outside temp sensors. Just an airflow disturbance just like Basher said, there is nothing wrong. My GMC does it also.

    As the others have indicated, nothing to worry about. I've had mine read as high as 141* when driving around with the plow on in the summer.

    On my Dodge I can change the temps by angling the plow. It's always cooler outside if the blade is angled to the right.
