I've got some stray wires kinda hanging there, and I DONT like that at ALL!!!
Bavarian autosport has the repair kit and sensor.

considering bavauto's outrageous greed for profit, it wouldn't surprise me.

Default Re: Outside Temperature Sensor

So i just got the sensor (I got the sensor from AutohausAZ in under 24 hours with free shipping) and did some digging for that wire. The one wire I had found before when doing the foglights had a similar connection but opposite layout (ie flat part was on the wrong side of the connector).

The other loose wire I found is pictured below. It's connected on the bottom side the cross member the spans between the 2 fenders and supports the radiator. Might this be it?

The repair kit hasnt come in yet, otherwise I would have tried splice some wires already...


Potential wire:




No clue what this connector is for... any ideas? The yellow piece is the end of the new temp sensor.

That looks like the alarm connection for the siren.

Nitro, any luck on this? I have the same issue. Mine reads 122 degrees.... Temp sensor is missing and I don't see any wires. Where did you get the repair kit?

Sorry, just realized this was E36....

For your E46, you'll need:

65816905133, temp sensor, 38.18
61138365340, socket, 2.50
61130005199, wires, x2, 1.58 each

I installed everything yesterday. You could orient the wires one of two ways, so I'm trying the first way right now. Apparently on the e36 it takes up to 24 hours to reset, so I'm taking my -35 degrees with a grain of salt for the first 24 hours. I'll switch the wires if it still doesnt work after 24 hours. I had gotten mine through bavarian, but it looks like tischer's pricing below is better.
