Ambient temperature not working ok

I'm a new owner of a 2008 GT. Everything I was curious I found in the forum.

But the only thing is not working on the bike is the ambient temperature readings. It goes very high when it's really cold outside.

Anyone has had the same problem?

Where is the sensor located? (maybe it's loose and touching something hot)

Thanks for the help.

Sensor is under front of nose faring, either left or right side of forks, mounted on inside of inner faring. Wires attached to back of sensor and the front has a black sharp pointed nose. If you can't I'd it go to Max BMW and look in their parts fich for a pic.

Found it! Thank you very much. It was loose, so probably hanging too close to the engine.
I will try a test run to verify if it works ok.
