I've looked high and low, and cannot find it. Where's this little bugger hiding at y'all? Mine is a 2011 S model.

Top center of overhead console. Looks like a spy cam or mic that government would be spying on you from. Small about the size of half a dime.

Isn't that one only for the cabin auto air stuff? This is the one which shows the outside temps. Chrysler part # 05149264AB. I am popping a check engine light, P0073

3.6l or 2.4l?

On the 2.4l and 3.6L the AAT removal instructions:
  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the front fascia lower close out panel from the vehicle.
  4. Reach up between the lower edge of the front fascia and the front of the a/c condenser near the right end of the lower air intake opening to access the ambient temperature sensor (3) just below the front bumper (1).
  5. Disengage the Connector Position Assurance (CPA) lock of the wire harness connector (2) for the sensor and depress the connector latch tab.
  6. Pull the sensor straight out of the connector.

I was afraid it was hiding up in there. Thanks for the info Capecodmopar. One more question, where did you get that from? Now that my warranty is out, I need that. :)

(my local dealership wanted $800 to replace my $244 alternator...)

Do you know whether that manual includes any service info for the convertible top hardware? I have a 2012 convertible and I've held off buying the service CD until I could get an answer about this.

Just an update, my sensor was fine... however a mouse apparently decided that the wires were tasty. Sadly, I cannot splice it since it was right next to the socket where is was completely chewed off. Now, it's time to find the socket... *sigh*

Ok I know this is old but here is my situation. My grandaughter has a 2014 Chrysler 200 2.4 liter it has a p0073 ambient air temp input high. This 200 has been wrecked on the right front corner to the center. I suspect the sensor was destroyed. But I can’t find a clue of where it was or where it is supposed to be. I have looked in front of the condenser at bumper level can some body give me the wire color codes so I can trace this out. Or a picture of where it should be. Any help is appreciated.

Welcome to the forums. The wire colors should be Vt/LGn and Vt/DBu.
  1. Remove the front fascia lower close out panel from the vehicle. (Refer to 13 - Frame and Bumpers/Bumpers/FASCIA, Front Lower - Removal) .
  2. Reach up between the lower edge of the front fascia and the front of the a/c condenser near the right end of the lower air intake opening to access the ambient temperature sensor just below the front bumper.
  3. Disengage the Connector Position Assurance (CPA) lock of the wire harness connector for the sensor and depress the connector latch tab.
  4. Pull the sensor straight out of the connector.

Look for the cut or torn wire ends. The collision shop may never have reinstalled the sensor if the sensor and connector was ripped out. Out of sight, out of mind I guess?

Ok thanks for the info. I did finally get a picture of its location. And I did find a pair mangled wires. One violet/light green the other one is violet. I didn’t see a dark blue stripe. But they are together as a pair. They come out of the harness as a pair in the vicinity of the right hand horn. So I am going with that for now. What is really silly is the connector is more then the sensor. I have every thing coming.

Pigtail soldered an shrink wrapped sensor installed and zip tied to lower air grate. Code reset and hasn’t came back info displays the outside air temp. Now on to other issues.
