The reason your A/C sent hot and dash showed -40 is because you probably lost your amibent sensor. Its a sensor that reads the tempature outside and if its cold it will not allow your a/c to work, if you force it, you'll cause far more damage then you'd like. You can go to www.bimmerspecialist.com and find an ambient sensor. Also check www.bimmerfest.com to get pictures where your amibent senor is located. Mine was in back of the front / passanger sensor, and it got ripped off as I hit something on the road. Hope this helps...

Air conditioner will not come on. The tempeture gage is reading -40. The sensor is not reading properly.


Hi ruswashingto,

The air conditioner may not work properly if your ambient temp is reading -40. The a/c control unit monitors ambient temp so that it does not operate at too low outside temps. I would recommend fixing the ambient temp sensor and rechecking your a/c operation.

Air conditioner suddenly stopped working and my outside temp on dash reads at ( - 40 )ever since.heater works fine


the sensor that reads the outside temperature may be the problem.The computer will not turn on the a/c if it is 40 below outside.
