I have all that already.. I have the whole 5 book set for the truck. I need to know what sensor the hvac system is referencing for the "outside air temp raw" and "outside air temp filtered" that i'm seeing on the tech II
Chevy Mechanic: Dan, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

The ambient temp is the same for the mirror. Try unplugging the ambient temp sensor to see if it changes the reading

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Chevy Mechanic: Dan, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Check the LT green/black wire for an open from the outside temp sensor to the hvac control module.
