Be careful cav, in the breeze ute, it stands out more then the lane. The chicks will be throwing themselves at the ute. And if the lane had chick dings, the ute may cop a hail/female storm.

The ambient temp sensor is cactus, a common fault apparently.

A new one is $26.

I probably won't bother.

You've never driven a ranger have you? My old ranger had the turning circle of the qe2. The ba ute my old work had years ago was like a jetski in comparison. Ive only owned a bf sedan and a fg sedan, they turn alright. The utes a bit longer, but shouldnt be much if any longer then the lane.
I did have to laugh at an ex apprentice of mine. He was complaining about the turning circle of his ss ute. I chucked him the keys to the ranger and said take a wide birth. He thought i was joking. Well, long story short, i wasnt joking, and he came a poofteenth of an inch from hitting a post just getting out of the parking space. So the fg should be a breeze in comparison.

The outside temp shows about 9 degrees, and I have been wondering about the efficiency of the A/c in squillion degrees temperature, plus HUMIDITY!
