    Sounds like a sensor is open circuit, so probably broken wire or bad connector. BUT is the diagnostic reading the Engine Coolant or Thermostat sensors ? (X126 & X336 in RAVE)

    255 F is 120 C

    If you go to settings can you switch between metric and imperial ?

    however if it is cold, then it would dictate that the temp sensor is failed?

    i should imagine its reading engine coolant , but it must be wrong , engine stone cold , i wouldnt want to see this if it were hot
    will have to have another look on the weekend when i have more time , and yes does sound like engine temp sensor has failed
