Default Where are the sensors?

Hey guys....

Just wondering where the follow 3 sensors would be located on my 91?

-hood ajar sensor
-light sensor
-ext. temp sensor

The reason I ask is because my hood is not showing as "ajar" when it'* open, and because of the turbo under the hood the ext. temp is about 10c higher. The light sensor... well.. I've always been curious.

Thanks

On my 95 my hood ajar sensor is broke, and it located on the left front core support bar. Looks like a button, well that'* what it is....About 10" to the right of my hood latch if you were looking in.

I would venture to guess that6 it would also run the under hood light, now that I think about it.. My car has the same problem.

Hood ajar is a push in switch on the front..I believe the rad support.

Temp sensor..center support that has the secondary hood latch on it.
