    Default CID, Outside air temp

    My outside air temp on the clock screen reads _ _._*C. Any ideas what that fault may be?

    Have you had a new bumper fitted?

    Came across this a while back, where the donor bumper still had a length of it's loom attached.

    After removing the "donor" loom, and fitting the car's own loom to the bumper, full service was restored.

    A faulty sensor would normally give a stupidly high value, such as 43'C.

    --.-'C means that there is an open circuit to the sensor.

    If you are on your original bumper and loom, then I would check for a broken wire.

    Note the wires are blue and blue/white.

    These run from the sensor, direct to the body control module behind the glove box.

    Pins numbered 44 and 47 if my memory serves me well.

    If you cannot find the break in the wire, try putting in two flying leads direct to the BCM as described.
    If this now works, then put in two permanent replacement wires.
