    So I finally bought a overhead console with the temp/compass . My truck was pre-wired above in the overhead console. I also was able to get a sensor cause my truck didn't have one. I can NOT find the plug to plug into the sensor. I read other posts about finding the plug under the horns,,but I can't find it.
    How much do y'all think the dealership would charge to run this plug? :confused:
    Thx for all input

    buy your own wires from radioshack, and run your own wires. check the 1C connector(look behind the coin tray, driver side). look at the 1C connector next to that 30 fuse, see the gray and black wires(pins 1 and 3) if you don't have any wires there, install your own plug there and run em in front of the radiator. those are the 2 wires that go on front of the radiator and that is plugged into the ambient temp sensor. I used 20gauge wires from RadioShack.
