So a new thing has developed for us. 2017 EX-L. The outside temp is showing WAY off. The other day it was about 55 outside, showing -40. I tried resetting the system (unhooked battery for several minutes) thinking it would recalibrate but it did not. Anyone know if there’s a way to recalibrate or otherwise where the sensor is to try replacing it?

Sounds like a bad connection at the sensor, or possibly the sensor itself is defective. -40 F is probably as low as it reads when there is no signal from the sensor.

It should be on the inside of the bumper to the left of the red wires under the driver headlight. The wiring comes out of the plastic loom that runs near the bottom of the battery tray.

I found and replaced the sensor. Now the display is showing all dashes inside. This vehicle has been involved in a couple of mild front end collisions so now I’m thinking the wiring harness may have some damage. Everything else fed by the harness is working. Considering replacing the harness as the next step. Thoughts?

I guess I would search the harness for damage and see if that's the problem. I would think about running wires just for the temp sensor instead of the whole harness. Splice new wire past damage use good connectors and heat shrink tubing.

Were you successful after changing the harness? I have a similar situation, car was in an accident and the sensor and harness were ripped out. I am looking to replace the harness and sensors, do you happen to have the part numbers or links to parts on eBay or other sources?

Life has kept me busy and I have not had a chance to try the harness yet. I found it relatively easily on one of the Honda parts sites.
