Today after work, I installed Honda's OEM temp sensor kit. Many of us have known of the outside temp kit from Honda but I dont think anyone has installed it before?
The kit is for 03-07 Accord EX and LX models. Its crazy simple, and a very quick plug and play type install. All connectors on the car are open and ready, just waiting for this kit! It took me a hair over an hour, but that also included a coolant drop and refill.
The directions appear involved, but it isnt and some bolt removal isnt actually required. I could have shaved 20 minutes if I opted to route the wires more crude from the front of the car to the back of the relay box, where the plug is hiding. Most important, is you dont need to remove the hood latch to push pin install the sensor bracket if your hands fit. I figured that out before I removed it.
Honda has discontinued this kit, and now they are under $100 shipped from common Honda part web sites. Anyone with a 03-07 EX or LX who ever wanted outside temp...this is a must do add on! Its too easy!
Sensor attaches with 2 push pins just below and in front of the hood latch.
Brown plug is the exsisting open plug connected to the temp sensor. Under hood install complete.
Under the dash, its all plug and play to exsisting plugs and ground location. The module gets mounted to an exsisting bracket if you have cruise. If not, a bracket is included.
And 6 years later...I know the outside temp.
