30C is about where it should be with the engine running, if it was faulty iirc the reading would be 0C, had an issue like that with the coolant temp sensor.

You cannot use *any* air temp sensor with the Microtech. You must use what the unit was programmed for. If it's an FD , an FD air sensor and if it's an FC , an FC air senor. The resistance is waay different between the two.
You have to use the same CAS, water temp and air temp sensor
