Need a new sensor, not sure how much they are, but it's quite common so there may be a guide for you to have a go yourself. If not, I'd consider living with it!

Mine did that when SVG had the bumper off and forgot to plug the sensor back in. Leaving it disconnected may make your car go better but up your fuel consumption as it is used as a reference by the ecu to calculate fueling. It will use a default until fixed.
