I hit a raccoon yesterday and now my temperture control cluster is messed up. Meaning that it no longer reads the outside tempertaure, everything still works fine that I can tell but noticed today there is a wire hanging from the center if the the airdamn (just behind the lisence plate) with a control module or something, but cant tell where its broken off from, anyone else been the victim of raccon damage like this

That was your external temp sensor. The HVAC uses it.

Look in front of the radiator, about half way down around the center of the car and you'll probably see where it used to be attached.

And if it'* attached, pick through the coon guts and hair as you trace the wires back to where they tore loose.
