think thats from the fog light, where it connects and holds the bulb, there should be one at each side.

Daily driving a 91 325i [ 2.5L inline 6 ]

Pimping in a 63 Buick Riviera [ 403 Nailhead ]

Racing in a 77 Pontiac Trans am [ 400 poncho ]

Well.... allways racing :-)

Thats what I thought, but I couldn't find it on the other side when I looked before I started the thread. I'm sure you are right though. I will plug it back up tomorrow. Thanks dude.

How are the gas prices in your area haha (the last 2 cars in your sig drink that stuff I bet)

Fog light? I don't think so. On my 94, it is in the brake duct on the opposite side of the temperature sensor (the driverís side I think).

Correct. It's the temp sensor for the heated windshield washer jets.

Yup, it's definitely the temperature sensor that goes into the brake ducts.

So I have that same thing in my '94 325is. Now my pass side brake duct is missing for some reason and that little thing (sensor in pics above) just hangs out behind the pass side headlight. So WHAT is it? My outside temp sensor is located in the drivers bake duct correct??

My car was in the body shop last week and we found the same thing hanging. We couldn't figure it out either and I started a thread in here asking what it was. A few people thought it was the OBC temp sensor, but it's not.

The big sensor with four plastic clip and a metal central piece is nothing more than the windshield washer heater temp sensor, this tuns on the electic heater present on the windishield washer jets.

The temp sensor for the on board computer is a yellow one with a black prong.

Both are located on the brake air ducts, one on each side...
