    i seem to have a little problem * i hope little anyway *
    i changed my outside temp sensor as it was giving out the wrong temp.
    it was saying like 34 degree's outside when it was like 10 degrees

    Do you have a preface car?

    If you do its probably a corroded connection at the plug by the passenger fog light

    On the preface there is a plug you can uno tahe allows the bumper to be removed with the fogs and temperature sensor still on the bumper.

    This is a facelift picture but the arrow shows roughly where the plug is:

    Scraped the pin on the end I could get to and used a bit of wire to push in and out of the other half.

    Then once done squirted wd40 and contact cleaner into both parts and plugged back together.
