Enabling temperature display on dash

It can be done but you cannot see anything since the OBC display is shared with the odometer display as of 2001. You must therefore do the trip computer retrofit so you can switch displays.

Search, as it has been covered many times on this board. There have been four 2003 trip computer retrofits posted here.

I have a 98 Boxster that doesn't have the OBC, but would like to enable the temp display. I checked the sensor inside the front grille and noticed one of the two wires leading to the sensor was broken.

How much does a new sensor cost? Is it difficult to replace? What's the name of the tool that enables the display?

You can unplug the sensor but you said a wire is broken. Fix the wire.

The OBC is turned on with the PST2 or the newer PIWIS. If you see ---- in the middle gauge then it is already turned on, but you cannot see the numbers if a wire is broken.
