2011 v6: sensor question while rebuilding my front end after accident

i was in a small accident, resulting in my bumper being essentially toast.

when i got my car back, i noticed that there was this sensor just dangling and touching the ground. I've been looking but cant seem to figure out where it goes... Its wiring originates around the front left drivers side/horn area.. can anyone offer some insight into what this sensor is/where it goes/what it does?

here are some pics to show what im talking about.

That is your temperature sensor. It usually clips into the side of the lower grille opening on the V6. When I changed my bumper to the Roush fascia I just taped it in place just inside my lower grille. Still works well.

Got to love shops that don't do a complete repair job...NOT!!!

Ambient air temp sensor, either take it back to the shop and get them to get the proper clip to put it back where it is supposed to go or just use a wire tie to tie it up behind the grill.

oh no its not a shops fault... im doing the repairs myself.. all i needed was to switch a bumper, but forgot i had tucked this lil guy up for the drive of shame home...

well that completely answered my question... im switching to the roush facia, and couldn't find a spot to mount this sucker... makes sense now.

yay! looks like she will be back on the road in just a few hours.... about time as driving my ex's 1994 camry is not quite the same beast.

I made a custom lower grille for my Roush fascia out of black honeycomb mesh. I attached the sensor to that.
