    I know some people had said that the scanguage does not display the outside air temp on a Tacoma, but I called scangauge and they said that it should be able to if there is a temp sensor.

    Can someone who has a 2009 (they changed how the sensor is routed in 2009) and a scangauge try plugging in the x codes from this webpage http://www.scangauge.com/support/pdfs/XGAUGE.pdf for the "ambient air temp" option and see if this works.

    I have been trying to locate a 2009 overhead console for the temp sensor and can'r seem to get one. This would be a nice option if it works.

    Much appreciated.

    I doubt the Tacoma outside temp probe provides a signal to the truck's ECM. No reason for it. Intake air temp is what's needed for engine management. But if it does it might be one of those things that requires someone to come up with the custom script coding for the ScanGage to access. Like another poster at TN I typically see about a 5-10 degree difference in outside temp (my truck has a overhead display) and IAT once moving and at equalibrium.

    Raylo, seeing you have a 2009 and a scangauge, can you try this for me?

    TXD - 686AF10146
    RXF - 04410546
    RXD - 2808
    MTH - 00090005FFD8
    NAME - AIR

    I am not sure what these mean, but they are the #s for the X codes.

    Much Appreciated.

    I don't have time to fool with it now... The guys over at TTORA are really into trying the xcodes. Most are looking/waiting/hoping for one that works for tranny temp, which is good to know in general and necessary for checking or filling the auto tranny properly. Unfortunately, no one has got that to work yet...
