holes in Buick dashboard

Unread post by neubs129 » Sun Apr 14, 2013 12:49 pm

There are small rows of holes in the dashboard to the right of the steering column. Does anyone know what they are? This is on a 2005 Buick Century. Thanks!

After clicking "Post reply", scroll down a little to "upload attachment", click browse- this will open files on your computer to browse for the picture. Click on the picture, click OK. The picture will now upload. Now click "Add the file".
You can also type in a small description in the box to the left of "Add the file" before your click it.
Then click "Submit" to submit the whole reply with the picture.
Or you can go to the Picture Gallery and upload it there. That may be a little easier.

Perfect, thank you.
These holes are for what is called the "in-cabin temperature sensor." Behind the holes is a small fan that draws air from inside the car and passes it over a temperature sensor. This is used for the automatic A/C - heater to adjust the temperature coming out of the vents.
