I have a 2001 Avant. Problem is, it's about 2500 miles away and I'm being told that my outside temperature sensor is acting up. Intermittently it will read crazy temperatures, like -7 degrees when it's really 80. Replaced the cracked AC condenser because initially problems were occuring after it was in wet conditions. Then replaced the sensor itself. I'm trying to get my mechanic to check it out again, but would like to know what I might be dealing with.

Any ideas?[:|]

Thanks for the help.

From what I can find, it's likely the engine coolant sensor that needs replaced (again?). Any thoughts?
