Saab 9-3 Aero convertible: I have a 2004 saab 9-3 aero convertible.

Customer Question
I have a 2004 saab...
I have a 2004 saab 9-3 aero convertible. After my car was retired from damage to front bumper and spoiler, mechanics never installed new ambient air temp sensor. Now I have no temperature reading in cabin and seems to be affecting use of my convertible top. When you try to put top down message says "YOU MAY DAMAGE SOFT TOP IN COLD TEMPERATURES ". It is 80 degrees outside.
