I have both the dash and mirror (factory) temp guages. They display either the same temp or 1 too maximum 2 degrees difference. Does anyone else notice this?

Are they running of the same thermometer?

Thanks

The mirror's temp sensor is usually behind the front bumper cover, at least that's where Gentex (the manufacturer) always tells people to install it.

I think the RAV's sensor might be one of those buttons in the top left hand corner of the dash... If it is, it would be infrared as opposed to a physical probe/bulb sensor attached to the mirror.

Thanks rav4less.......

Question 2....... know the locations of the sensors? :D
Yes , It's right in front of the lower grille on the right side looking at the font of the car. It looks like a small black plastic spark plug kind of shape. Maybe a small probe shape also...
