HELP

Not sure what happened but my car keeps telling me the outside temp is -40 degrees. I wouldn't mind, but it has to freaking ring a bell and tell me 5 times every mile. How can I fix this?

Car is a 2012 135i.

I think the temperature sensor is usually inside a fender or under the front bumper. Considering that you recently had major surgery on your fenders and bumper, I'd expect that it might be related to a damaged wire or sensor.

RealOEM might help you find the sensor location.
