2002 BMW x5 frozen in summer

My X5 is going into failsafe on startup. The intake air temp reads 5F and the coolant temp sensor reads 30F. Its 80 degrees outside. The dash gauge reads fine and when it warms to operating temp on the gauge all drivability issues go away. But the car still reads frozen from obdII. I cleaned the IAC with electronics cleaner and it jumped to 15F. Could something cause all temp sensors to run low.

Welcome to Bimmerfest!

I moved your question to the E53 forum (X5, 1999-2996), where you can get model specific help.
