The thermometer display on the dash of our '03 Journey DL is off by more than a few degrees. Am either missing the book on it or am overlooking it. Is there a proceedure to calibrate it? Drove by the bank yesterday, it said 92, the TV mentioned 93, radio said 93 but our display thinks it is 106. This was after being in motion for a while, I know it does creep up some if you are stopped.

Gunny, my thermometer goes high when the generator is running, I suspect the sending unit is under the hood.

I have gas (8.1 Workhorse), mine (Temp) goes up when I stop or drive slow (under 20mph). The temp sensor is under (behind) the front bumper, (which is not a bumper but a look-a-like), and the sensor picks up heat from the radiator.

I bet even the Journeys have the sensor in the same location. It (the sensor) also picks up extra heat from blacktop parking lots. Works great driving down the highway.
