Lightbulb Facelift Freelander Enable and Fit External Temperature Ambient Sensor

Facelift Freelander How to:

Enable and Fit External Temperature Ambient Sensor Instrument Pack Display

The external temperature sensor display will assist the driver in conditions where ice is possibly present. The IPK displays a snowflake sign at temperatures lower than 4degC.

Hi There,
This is great! I have owned the Freelander for about 6 mths now (Its taken that long to get everything working!), but was disappointed that there was no outside temp display!, I have been looking at all kinds of add on's mostly cheap eBay stuff but wanted something 'factory looking' most displays seem to be blue or orange!, then where do you fit them!, I looked to modify the clock
and fitting something behind maybe an In.Pro Check Temp3?, then I found this post!!, I will have to see if I can track down the parts you mentioned?,
Also you mention the the G/O wire terminates at the centre console, could it be picked up there rather than remove the cluster?
Thanks for your info!!

Regards,

Danny.

I really need to do this!, been looking at ways of getting an ext temp that looks factory and there you go a factory fix!,
How difficulyt is it to get the harness?, and also can the wire be picked up from
the cetre console to save removing the instrument cluster?
Any help would be most welcome!

Many Thanks Danny.

it's easier from behind the instrument pack takes about 5 mins to remove. Centre console access will be a pain.

Hi Lovel,
Thanks for your reply!
I will hopefully get to do this over the xmas holidays unless I wuss out
in the cold weather!
I have found loads of sensors just got to track down some harness with the plug on,
my local Land Rover specialist use Autologic I believe? not T4, I will ask them
if they have the ability to enable the IPK for the temp reading?

Thanks again Hopefully I will post some results in the next few weeks!

Regards,

Danny.

I cant say what Autologic is capable of, but if you get stuck going down that route, there are a number of T4 operators on here for MG Rover cars that will also be capable of changing the LCS codes on Landrovers too. If you put your location in your profile perhaps would help identify if you were near to one.

Hi Lovel,
Thanks for your suggestion, I have just tried editing my profile but for some reason I don't have permission to do so? nevermind!,
I'm new to this forum and bit of a novice on Forums in general so its probably me!.
Anyway I'm based in Essex not to far from Southend on Sea or Chelmsford.

Many Thanks,

Danny.

Of all the MG Rover T4 folks, this gentleman is probably best placed to do it for you, but he is some distance away, unless you were ever up in his area? I believe he does travel around.

update on this sensor for MG ZT Rover 75 LandRover etc

Hi people I joined this forum to share this information on this sensor

The sensor's rover part number was/is
JTF000180

you can buy a new replacement here (I have no connection with the company)



https://www.dmgrs.co.uk/collections/...00180-external


The part shown in the photo is part number 077500-5191

Because Rover had bought in the sensor it is also used in loads of Japanese cars and still used on Land rovers including the following cars

Toyota prius,yaris,rav4,lexus is 200,LEXUS RX II 2007,2002-2006 Lexus ES300 and ES330,

Mazda rx8

2010 SUZUKI SWIFT 1.6 3 DOOR SPORT

the LR part number for the loom is BH22-14A614-CA

sensor part number is 077500-5191

Do a search on ebay for 0777500-5191 and you will find it is fitted to loads of Japanese cars the corresponding socket will obviously be used too.

I have a 2005 Freelander and want to do this where do I find some one with a computer to enable the sensor once fitted? Im in Lincs

Any decent Landrover dealer in your area should be able to help you change the options with a T4. Now whether they are too scared to do it or would charge an arm and a leg for it I don't know ?
