    all depands on what you wahnt to mesure. Cars thermostat mesures cooling fluid and opens the pipe to adjust the flow to keep steady temps of the engine.

    So basically you should tell us what u want to mesure?

    If you want the out side temp, place it in one of the wheel arches...

    Looks pretty clear to me that the OP wants to measure inside and outside air temperatures...

    Make sure the inside sensor is away from direct HVAC airflow and windows.
    Thanks,

    It is all up to you where you put them.

    if you are putting one of our thermometers outside, then you should encase it in silicone or hot glue or something water proof.

    So I should encase the actual little diode in hot glue? is it still going to read proper temperature??
