Snowboard360 is an unknown quantity at this point
i have a 2002 525i sport..

something hit the underside of the car and looks to have torn some wires out below the front right bumper...since the temp rrading has gone heywire on the electronic read out. (showing ext temp)...and it is pinging all the time like chinese water torture. i need to find out where these wires go and what does the sensor looks like...as i am not sure if it is still intact. the wires are now taped up...but if i can find out ho to fix them back in...t'would make me a happier person...

I had the same issue a few years ago. The temp. sensor is about the size of a pen cap with two wires. The good news is it costs around $25.00 cdn.
