So just installed the optional trip computer and works great. Been looking around ebay for a outside temp sensor module but am wondering why can't i just buy a aftermarket sensor module from rapid and just solder the wires direct bypassing the connector designed for the official plug in ford sensor. Anyone reckon this would work? Temp sensors can be bought for pennies from most major component stores such as rapid electronics

See if you can find specs on the resistance range that the module is looking for. That would determine what you can and can't use. If you rig up a sensor that uses a different heat range you might end up having to translate your module readings, like 100C is actually 90C and so on.
