Outside Temp. Indicator "sticking"

Has anyone had their dash outside temp not work? The temp shows but does not change when I know it's warmer outside. Yesterday it read 37, then when I was driving later in the day it finally came up to the right temp.
Where is the sensor located?

It is inserted in the bracket holding the driver's side headlamp assembly. You probably need to remove it and clean the contacts.

Mine does that. I think it's supposed to be a feature. There's a post here about it

I couldn't decide if those rules matched what I was seeing, and it didn't seem like there was anything to do about it anyway.
