Interior Temperature?


Feb 15, 2021
What does the interior temperature represent? It is 5:30 a.m. here in South Florida, the outside temperature is 71 F and my Model Y is in my garage with the app indicating the interior temp is 83 F. Just trying to figure out where this reading comes from.
The interior temperature reading comes from inside the car. :D Specifically, inside the HVAC system. The outdoor ambient temperature sensor is in the front grill.
Do you know specifically where in the front grill the outdoor ambient temperature sensor is located? I am getting odd readings when I first start driving the car, where the outdoor temperature reading can be 10 degrees off.
