New batteries, now outside temp sensor issue...

I installed two new batteries the other day in my 2006 and now the outside temp display says 60 degrees all the time. Does it need to be reset or did I blow a fuse or something? Everything else works fine.

Are you sure its set to read ext temp? Does the number change when you change the thermostat?

Yes the number changes when I change the thermostat. It was easily 75+ here yesterday but during the entire 2 hours or so I was driving the truck around, it never registered higher than 60.
