This happens in my lag also, I presume the temperature sensor gives a reading to one decimal place, ie 1.4 degrees, and then the lovely chaps at reanault have programmed the display to show no decimal places. Then the minus sign must be derived from the orginal temp?

e.g. actual temp -0.4 degrees c, display rounds to zero, but still picks up the minus sign? and displays -0???

BTW, -8 when I got in the car this morning, although it had warmed up by the time I got to work... -5

EDIT - Abou27 beat me to it with a shorter post!
