Thanks so much,... so this senses the outside temperature... do you know if there is also a sensor...a thermometer inside the cabin?..it would send the temperature to the automatic system , to shut things down when desired level is reached in the cabin.

You're welcome. Glad to help. Thank you for the best answer click! Yes, there's an in car temperature sensor. It's in the dash. My, '08 model has that sensor behind a little grille on the dash just to the left of the climate control panel. HTH. -Jim


Thanks again. I don't think it is in the same place on the 1991..will keep looking...Air is working now,, but thought I might find it while I had dash open.
