yeah it stands for ambient temperature (outside temperature). This could be interesting, because obvously the computer is ready for a probe, but just doesn't have one. I'm curious if you can just pop in the module for the automatic climate control that we don't have here either. if you look at the audio install pictures it looks like the whole block that the three climate knobs are in just come out like a stereo would
i wonder if the plug for the autodim mirror sensor can be used with the plug for the AMB temp display.. you could still hook up the mirror and get the compass feature, but at least have the temp on the instrument panel display... do any of u think this is a possibility? or maybe even a replacement sensor for the rx-8 or mz6.
So the temp probe is in the rearview mirror? How does that work? I know at a restaurant I worked at we had a temp gun that could tell the temperature of a surface without touching it. While figuring out a way to install a Valentine 1 radar detector I noticed there is a decent sized gap between my headliner and my windshield, and also directly above the rear-view mirror there is a channel. Maybe there is a harness in the headliner.
EDIT: I meant the temp probe in the 6. Also, if I was building a car I would wire the probe to a central computer, or atleast a climate control computer. Therefore I don't think that the mirror would have anything more than a probe
