Hey, my car is a 2002 330ci and my temperature is reading 150F and like 120F and rediculosly high stuff. Why is it doing this? Any ideas?

Thanks

You *may* have damaged your ambient temperature sensor; although it normally reads -40°F. If you look under your front bumper, immediately in front of the driver's side tire; you should see a needle type sensor. If you dont or it looks damaged, then you need to replace it. Its a ~$40 part and is easy to install.

This is just an idea... Since your problem sounds different from the normal.
