95 318i - OBC Temp ?

I replaced the bulbs on my 95 318i OBC (7-buton) and now the thing lights up.
The TEMP always displays [-35 F]. Whats going on? Whats wrong?
What do I check next? HELP!

-35 F is the default display when there is no signal from the temperature sensor. The sensor is either disconnected, has a bad contact, or needs to be replaced. The sensor is located in the left side brake air duct most of the time.

My 318i lost it... I'm surprise my M3 hasn't.

If all you have is the wire, there isn't a connector I don't think... It looks like a temp probe and you push it into a hole in the brake duct. If there's not brake duct you'll have to zip tie it up somewhere... More hassle than it's worth I would think.

well the temp probe has to connect to the whire somehow doesnt it. it has two leads coming out of the back of the probe like it would connect into a socket of some kind.
