Here's a link to show you where to look, appears it's to left of drivers headlight looking from in front of vehicle, attached to or near upper rad support. My guess is it will probably be a dealer item, depending how fast you want it I guess. Don't be afraid to pull wire connector off & clean & re-install it, just to see if that doesn't help. A little di-electric grease on installation is a good idea too, to help keep moisture out.
When you get to link(page) scroll down to 4.6L engine, page 2 & click on that. Might not be your engine, but good chance ambient sensor is in same area.( http://www.autozone.com/shopping/repairGuide.htm?pageId=0900c152801e0000 )

AC recirculation is not working (outside temp is -37 degree centiigrade).


there is a damper that opens and closes to allow air to recirculate or come from outside. Find out where that is and check it out.

Temperature display isn't accurate


Hi Dale. Look under the front bumper either on the left or right trim panel. The trim panels are triangle in shape. An outside temp sensor usually sits in this area. The sensor may be missing. BMW has the sensor, wire, and connector available sperately if they are missing or damaged. It will cause the outside reading to be -40 and can cause the a/c compressor not to operate.

2001 VW Beetle TDI. Why does my LCD,outside temp. display,above the rearview mirror, show four dashes all the time(----)?


outdoor temp sensor probably loose connection/failed. The outside air temp sensor is on the bottom drivers side of the grill. Find it and probe it w/ a multimeter. 0.0, or infinite resistance means the sensor is shot.

Also make sure you are getting power from the harness

Climate control display for Outside temperature


Had the same problem, replaced the ambient air temp sensor in front of the radiator. Cost is like 10-15 bucks. Don't worry if temp doesn't change right away. Took me about 5 miles and then it worked great.

Outside temp stuck on -40


when its at -40 usually its because the ambient temp sensor is not sending the proper signal to the controller.. it may just be disconnected.. the sensor it behind the grille.. it has a 2 wire connector to it ... itf its connected it may havea broken wire from body damage in an accident... its rare that the sensor fails..
