1997 993 Outdoor Temperature Sensor

Electrical and Electronic

Vehicle Information: Year: 1997; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 7900;

Please tell me where the sensor for the outdoor temperature is located. I have noticed that the outside air temp indication goes up 5-10 deg F after the thermostat opens up oil flow to the oil coolers. I suspect the added Turbo S oil cooler may be close enough to the sensor to change the reading. (It is normal and, I believe, accurate until that thermostat opens up. The rise in temp occurs within a minute or less after the thermostat actuates.) This is not a problem if this is actually what is going on. I just want to be sure there is not some other problem and that I understand what the car is telling me. Thanks!
