Hi Azurael - I see your point but he would be no better off as his current IAT sensor is open circuit anyway. Being a Renault it may go in default mode which is "limp home mode" - which is just about drivable. Raycantii's idea of bridging the connectors with a piece of wire would be just too risky in my view.
From what I know (I could be wrong) the sensor runs at 2 different voltages.
1. 5v when when passive and the
is in checking mode.
2. 12v when the engine is running and the sensor is activated and giving a signal.
If this is the case there would be a great risk of a dead short is the connectors where connected with no resistance
