    Default Temperature Gauge question

    I've noticed on my temperature gauge, that I get an ice warning at anything under 4.5 degrees, but sometimes it can be as low as 2 degrees without an ice warning. How can this be? Does it sense ice particles in the air or something. Does anyone know? Does anyone else really care? Or is it just me.

    Think it's an exterior sensor close to the front end of the car m8. Someone will soon tell me if I'm wrong.

    Yes, I know what it is, and where it is, I just wondered how it can differentiate between cold weather that is freezing, and colder weather that is not freezing if you see what I mean.

    I think its to do with if the temp has dropped and has risen - black ice - or if it drops while the car is running if you see what I mean??
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
