This sensor measures the temperature outside the passenger compartment and is usually mounted inside or near the front bumper. The sensor provides input to automatic HVAC systems to help control the interior temperature of the automobile. The sensor also provides the vehicle occupants with temperature readings from outside the car. This information is particularly useful when driving under near freezing or freezing conditions.
