What you mean "where this sensor belongs" ? you question is where sensor is located or where wires are connected in car electronics?
What temp you see - which is not correct?

I want to know where the sensor is located( where it is suppose to go when it comes from the factory). And yes because it is giving me a reading that is way off from what the temperature is outside

front of the car behind the bumper. Every car model have in slightly different location.
It will be a black plastic probe looking thing, about 2" long, about half the diameter of a pencil, and it will have a small plug connecting to the rear it. You can get to it from below by removing some of the "covers/panels" on the bottom of the front bumper
See this for more clues http://forums.5series.net/topic/9857...nsor-location/

Here is the canonical thread for the E39.
- AMBIENT TEMPERATURE SENSOR BREAKS OFF: low mounted ambient temperature sensors in the passenger side front wheel well cover is practically designed to be ripped off on a parking curb (1) (2) (3) (4) (5)


Your E60 sounds similar.
