The outside temperature sensor is likely located in the front of the vehicle, possibly in the grill area. Look around, you may see the sensor hanging or the connector and wiring for the sensor. You may need a new sensor or have the wiring repaired, but it shouldn't be too much of a problem for a skilled mechanic.
