Just notice a very exposed and poorly protected sensor on the Jeep while washing it (for the first time) today...

What's this sensor (look at attached picture)? Is it normal to be that visible? It it the normal location of this sensor?

I live in Quebec and during winter the snow and ice always padding in that area of the front bumper...

I have some difficulties to understand how it can read accurate temperature when it's fully exposed to wind draft while driving at high speed... other thing is the wires are pretty thin and completely unprotected from water, snow, ice, salt, etc. This sensor will probably give issues someday...

Thanks folks! :)

Worse thing that can Happen is the Evic doesn't tell you outside temps. Easy enough to repair though.
