    hi all
    Does anybody know the exact location and wiring colours for an outside air temp sensor on a 2 litre 318i touring bmw.
    Mine is missing and the oat is showing minus 40 deg and running rough with no power.
    I suspect an ecu fault but i want to eliminate the oat first (reccommended by a local ecu repair station)
    I have found some wires hanging but they dont correspond with the colour codes in the heynes manual.
    Anybody help?

    Andy

    On the E36, it's in the cooling ducting from the front bumper, towards the brake discs.

    Could maybe try there.

    Plus, the outside temp' sensor should have no impact on how your car drives. Even though it's showing -40c, the rough running will be down to something else.
