If your getting a "service soon" display in your DIC, you can try this >>>>>> While pressing an holding the trip button, turn on the ignition, then release the trip button. The DIC should now display the service soon info (it does this in my car). To reset, press an release the left scroll wheel (my car then defaults back to the digital speed display). I have never had this display show up, so I'm not sure this will actually force the message to cancel full time.
To date, I have not heard of any outside temp sensor failure, but of course there's always a first.
