Exterior temp sensor

Can you help me, my clio (2003 dci 80) exterior sensor is giving me false info, it says that the temp is anything from about 15 degrees when I start the car and goes to about 40 when it has been running for a while.
Any ideas please?

If I need a new one, where does it plug into?

Thank you

There should be a nipple under one of your wing mirrors, that's the temp sensor.

Bit of cut and paste, cut the old one off, stick the new one in. Has been said on this forum not to use a soldering iron when connecting the wires as the heat from it can damage the new sensor.

Do a search and you should find something to help.

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
Torque is how far you take the wall with you.
