120.2 in my CL500

No, I'm not talking speed. The temp here hit 120.2F in the shade on our patio yesterday. I had an errand to run around 2 PM. The first thing I noticed in my
'97 CL500 is that the ambient temperature reading tops out at 111F. I wonder if the new Benzes have increased this value. The AC worked well, not the 44F of a few weeks ago but I would guess 55-65F which was certainly cool. I had a opportunity to sit and idle with the AC on. The coolant temp never got above 89C. This engine and my E420 engine run super cool.
A problem did occur though. I noticed that the low fuel warning lights were blinking on and off even though I had a half tank of fuel aboard. I garaged the car, raised the hood and let it cool down to a cool 110F.
Will have to wait this AM to see if the low fuel light goes out.

Sunny and clear and the temperature today in Milwaukee topped out at about 72 degrees. Not unusual when the wind blows in off lake Michigen, which is the usual mode untill late July or August. Of course, winter here sucks.
Resistance is Futile.

I know what you mean.....gotta love palm springs. My w201, m103 engine runs hot in the summer here 110C. But my car is a 1990 and my temp gauge doesn't top out at 111F, I think it reads whatever the temp is.
