I got a replacement OBC yesterday. It is 18 button and I have no idea what used to be in there before. The only feature that doesn't work is the code feature which is no biggie. There is another feature that doesn't work right. That is the outside temp it was telling me it was 101F out and well we haven't broke 75F yet... Do I just need to replace the sensor (where is it?) or is something else goofy?

it has probably moved and is reading the temp in the engine bay. The sensor should be located near the drivers foglight in the brake duct. I have the opposite problem. Mine sometimes comes loose and dangles beneath the car, and when I go through a water puddle the temp drops nearly 10-15 degress.

The sensor is plugged into the driver side brake duct. You should be able to see it when you jack up the car and look under the driver side fog light. Before you get another one make sure this one sits in the brake duct. Check this link out.
