there is 1 wire thats just dangling around under the hood... how am i sopposed to know if thats it or not???

the only other thing that i could think that, that wire can be is, my driver side sidemarker is no longer there...(meaning, there is no wires or bulb behind it...)

Yes ^^ That's it. Temp sensor. I'll try to find the wiring diagram and see if I can get you pics of the wire origin and destination off my car... later today... don't have the diagrams on this machine.

chances are if you were in a collision and its reading -35 and your not on the south pole....its severed off

so grab the 2 wires or just grab the plug and either sodder the 2 wires to the 2 prongs inside a new sensor or just plug it in...i just went with the low budget sodder and now it works just dandy
