SQ5 Outside temp showing +20-30c over


Registered User
Strange issue that's suddenly appeared on my '17 SQ5 - the outside temp sensor is reading about 35-38c in the UK the last couple of days despite it likely being between 0 and 7.

It's on the virtual cockpit whether that's any help, and it doesn't seem to be affecting anything else in terms of AC that I've noticed but I'm wondering whether this is something to just check the front intakes for any stone hits or such, or whether I should just book it straight in at the stealers for diagnostics?

Anyone else had a similar issue?

If under warranty, take it in, could be faulty sensor.
