I'm a new Bimmer owner (98 528i) and I am not a mechanic so please forgive me if this is a stupid question. I saw this hanging on the front passenger side of the bumper. Is this the Outside temperature sensor? Is this why its always showing -40 degrees?

Either the sensor no longer functions or there is a break in the wiring. The -40 reading is the default temperature when there's a malfunction. A new one is about $20-40 from the dealer, if I recall correctly, maybe cheaper on line.
