Just behind the grille, in front of the air conditioning condenser. HTH. -Jim

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
