Outside Temp Sensor and light sensor not working??

Ok, I have been reading in the forums here about people having problems with their outside air temp sensor, but I am not having this -40 to 120 variance that others are talking about. It seems that the temp is just reading inaccuratly. Today for instance, here in Irvine, CA @ lunchtime it was like 80 and the temp only read 58. Any ideas on troubleshooting????

secondly, it seems that when I have the light switch turned to the auto setting, they come on all the time no matter if it's sunny or not. Any ideas on that?? it doesn't seem to happen all the time, but today it did. it was 3:00PM in the afternoon and the lights turned on with the setting on auto.

should i take this to the dealer? I've only had the car for a month.

Dealer for sure especially since the vehicle is so new. Good luck and let us know what they find!
