Thumbs up

My '03 330ci seems to be having a problem. The outside temp is stuck on 40F in my dash display. I am unable to reset via the stick controls. The rear defroster kicks on when I start the car and is very annoying. Is there something I am missing? The 'alarm' that goes off when below 40F is not going off. Any thoughts appreciated.!

Does it read -40? Sounds like your sensor has gone bad. It is located in the drivers side wheel well and is prone to being damaged accidentally.

Yep. That seems to be the case. Was worried about that. I wonder if this is covered by BMW's extended warranty?
