I will assume that you are speaking of the climate control and will answer accordingly...The temp sensor is two part. It is located in the dome lamp assembly. There is a temperature sensor and an aspirator motor. The aspirator motor pulls the air over the sensor so it does not heat sink. Make sure it is pulling.
Do this by ripping a small piece of paper and see if it will hold to the little vent that pulls in the air.
