This is for my brother again. He has a 535i Sport Auto on a G plate 1989.
The OBC computer is saying the temperature is -35 outside all the time when it is no where near that.
Any ideas Cheers

My OBC does the same thing except its always -22 degrees. Is the sensor easy to replace?

Under construction

It more than likely got ripped off, or ground up. Reading cold like that usually means the sensor isn't there anymore.

It'll be in the front bumper, likely in an air duct, or at the bottom behind a grill. It's a small, pointed looking sensor, with 2 wires.
