Here's something I didn't expect.

The thermometer can not read temps colder than -30C - it displays "---C". On the positive side, this non-reading doesn't flash at you like all other negative temp readings :)

That flashing is a little disconcerting. I know its darn cold, I don't need a constant *blinking* reminder.

Strange, I wonder if it happens on the opposite end also.
manuelga have you seen "---C" when its really hot out?

based on non-canadian X-Trail service manual the sensor works between -15 and +45. I find the blinking so anoying that I'm gonna disconnect the sensor (in front of radiator just below the hood latch)

I've seing as up to 35°C, never seing my exty blinking (but I've seing my Renault's Scenic Blinking at 3°C), & never "----C" (I can't figure how's that cold)

Unhooking the sensor seems a little extreme. Why not just reset the display to clock or trip Odo? You can go back to outside temp in the spring.
PS I don't mind the flashing at all. It's nice to have a bit of a heads-up when the water on the road is about to turn to ice. :thumbup:

Because where I live it's always around +3 in winter so every time the temp goes up and back down it starts flashing. I find it very anoying when I have to change the display five times during 20km trip

Mike, are you saying that when you've set the display to the clock or the trip odometer, the outside temp guage overrides your setting and comes back on with the annoying (to you) flashing number? If so, unhook away, but I'd be surprised if that's how it works.
