Answers :

Go to Matthew's Volvo Site and search under "ambient temp sensor" I posted detailed instructions and pictures of how to fix this. Enjoy
Look around the front bumper near the little grille area.. That would be 16" above the ground and away from the engine so the readings would be better.
\015\012Ambient temperature
\015\012Indicates the temperature of the outside air (only accurate while driving) approx. 16 inches (40 cm) above road surface. \015\012The warning function comes on if the ambient temperature is between 23°F to 36°F (-5°C and + 2°C) to warn you that there might be ice on the road. \015\012The temperature and the frost symbol will be shown in the display.
\015\012The sunlight sensor (located at the top of the dashboard in the speaker frame at the passenger side) should not be covered in any way as this could cause incorrect information to be sent to the ECC(electronic climate control) system.
