I have a question about the temperature reading for my 97 540i. I removed the temperature sensor located in front of my right front tire because it was dangling. It looks like a need and has a two pin connector. This expectedly cause the reading to be off (it report -44 F). However, when i later reconnected the sensor it still reported an erroneous -44 F reading. Do i have to reset something? Or did i damaged the sensor when i removed it?

well if that dosent work in the future. it needs replaced
