I also would like to know. It seems to take mine 10 to 15 mins to update.

Thanks.
Is it normal for it to take 10 Minutes or more for the temp to change on the readout?

On this car, yes. On every other car I have owned, no. My 300C has the slowest air temp sensor I have ever seen. I have a Chrysler T&C and the sensor on it updates quickly and it is quite accurate. One would think the would use something they have that works well, rather than come up with the one we have on the car.

I've noticed that when temperatures outside are colder than what they are in my garage, that it updates within a few minutes. If it's warmer outside, then it stays at the same temp. Or, if can get up to speeds over 40mph for a few minutes, then it will also begin to update.

If you switch to the screen that shows the raw temperature from the sensor along with the average (which is what you see normally) you'll see that at startup on a hot day the sensor reads very high. It taks cool air moving over it for about 10 minutes to bring it down. For example, yesterday I was in Ojai Californina and it was 103 outside. Driving around a while showed 103. Parking for 3 hours and coming back to the car, the display shouwed 103 but the sensor was reporting 157. As I drove I watched it drop steadily until it matched the previous average.

The slow update is not because the sensor is slow, but because it is poorly positioned.

Thanks for the info. A lot of my driving is less than 10 mins, so that explains why mine doesn't change much.

my sensor works well, and changes quickly and frequently... i do really think it is positioning... while putting in my new grille i was able to position properly... didn't move it much, but just made sure it wasn't burried or touching anything..
