While removing the U.S. version valance, I came across this wire attached to a plastic piece(kinda where you described). The european valance didn't have this piece, so I snipped it off! I bet that is my problem. Since I did that, my readout is -22.
Lesson learned? Don't cut off any wires unless you know their function!

BTW, Vines( has used temp. sensors for $10.Ask for Jack.
