'98 E39 dash copmuter problems and Throttle actuator

recently purchased my 3rd 5 series and here are the issues... the temp gage reads -40 so in research I found the outside temp sensor but the unit is missing.. It had the front bumper replaced so I assume its gone.. the problem i need help with is

Trip computer doesnt work
gas mileage tracker doesnt work
time doesnt work

And i found a broken throttle actuator cable..

Can I drive the car with out this unit working.. i Think this is making my traction control light come on as well.. also my check engine light came on..

Any help on this is much appreciated..thnx all
