Does your temps sensor read correct in hot weather. It's a 100 degrees now and mine was showing 106 at one point. Still 105 after 20 minutes of air running. Seemed a few degrees off since I got it.

My older rigs would read a few degrees high but self correct after a short run time.

106 seems like a fair delta from actual for the Ambient Temp sensor.

That sensor is located in the Active Grill Shutters and the 5-6* delta is dead nuts. Tons of radiant heat from both the Condenser and the Radiator.

Condensers are capable of burns when running full tilt.
 
I think it has something to do with direct sun too. Clouds move in late afternoon and temp settled in to actual outside which was 102. I have direct sun 360 days per year.
