Incorrect outside temperature disables air conditioner.

(2000 BMW 328i)
in Nashville, TN on September 07, 2010
The outside temperature setting on my 2000 328i BMW will read an incorrect -30 degrees until I have driven about 10 miles. It will then change to +17 or +18 degrees, still incorrect, and at that temperature the air conditioner may return to normal. But not always. What is the problem? Can I disconnect the sensor to provide normal air conditioner functions? If so, where is the sensor located? thanx JON Wiii
