Chances are that your temperature sensor inside the empeg/RioCar is broken or never worked. The sensor was never used in any version of the player software as it was known that they were flakey (or "pants" =), so no reason to worry about it affecting your empeg/RioCar's performance.

If you are super desperate to replace the sensor for some reason, Hugo provided the following info on the chip:

It's a SO-8W dallas DS1821S, ISTR it's somewhere just behind the RAM chips - quite a wide chip.

It's surface mount, and so not desparately easy to replace; you may be able to get free samples from www.maxim-ic.com though. Personally, I wouldn't bother replacing it, as it doesn't really perform any useful function wrt to player operation!
