I believe your talking about the IAT. It measures air temprature. It's important because cold air is denser then warm air and it helps to maintain the correct air/fuel ratio. When it is unplugged the computer assumes it's -40ish degrees outside and adds more fuel. It won't harm the engine to unplug it but it may have a minor effect on gas milage which is minimal because of the O2 sensor will compensate. I would just drill a hole in the intake, tap it and screw it in.

The easiest way to reset it is to remove the negative battery cable. Or to save the preset on the radio unplug the pcm.
