Installed Sony XAV-AV5000 Stereo

Well, I bit the bullet and upgraded my stereo to a Sony HU XAV-AV5000 with a Metra installation Kit. Installation went well with a lot of prep work that paid off. I covered the Metra faceplate with a vinyl wrap 1080 Brushed Steel Air. Not a match but acceptable. One issue I noticed, when the ignition is in accessory the ambient temp read -4 degree. But when ignition is on, the ambient temp is reads normal. Funny Huh?
