website for technical help on car

Hi guys,

I wonder if any of you can help me find a web site which can help me identify a fault on my car. I own a 2003 Renault Scenic and it has a outside temp reading on the dashboard, the problem is it is reading about 10 degrees too low. I don't want to take it to the garage and get charged an arm and a leg for a sensor or buy a Haynes manual for this one minor fault.

Sorry this request is not computer related but, I always think someone in here will be able to help.
Many thanks.......Fred

thanks for all who answered my question. Topcat you are right, there is a sensor under the passenger side mirror which must of been knocked whilst I was washing the car. I have wiggled it about (technically of course) and the temp is fluctuating more now. I still think it's faulty so will have to look for the part concerned. I have heard that they try to sell you a mirror housing with the sensor built in but, you can get a sensor and solder it in to the exsisting mirror housing.
I am planning to sign up to both places where Patsyanne and realist have mentioned for future reference.
On a final point, what a place this PC Advisor forums is! have a problem with yuor car and get help from the great people here. I think this is fantastic, once again thanks for your help.

You might just get the mirror plus sensor from a scrapyard
