bimmer joe is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
I have a 1988 325ix and the outside temperature gauge on the on board computer reads -22 degrees all the time. I took this to mean that it either isn't connected correctly or its missing all together.

Does anyone know where the outside temperature gauge is on the outside of the car and how do i get to it?

Any input would help, Thanks.

I believe on your car it comes through the lower fascia next to drivers side fog light. Generaly these are bad conncetions or a broken wire.

Get the Bently Publisher book and look in there for directions on replacement parts such as the one you are trying to fix.
