Hello, I purchased 2013 Corolla with 37k mile on it last week from Toyota dealership.
Although it was NOT Certified Pre Owned by Toyota, it was limited CPO (3month or 3,000 mile) by Toyota dealer itself.

Several days ago, I found out that outside temperature sensor is not working on my dash. So I went to the dealer and they told me that they are not sure whether it will be covered by their CPO warranty. (They haven't diagnose yet, but it seems like it is the issue from outside temp sensor)

Here is my question.
My limited CPO covers - Air-conditioning: Compressor, clutch and pulley, condenser, evaporator, accumulator, temperature control programmer and high/low pressure hoses.

- Do you think outside temp sensor can be covered by those things?
- Is it related with my safety?

I am a student and diagnose fee -$80 itself is a huge fee for me. So if it does not be covered by warranty, and if it does not related with my safety, I am thinking about not fixing it.

Thanks!

sensor's and the labor cost to diagnose and replace
are generally not covered in most warranties.

But I can't say for sure without reading thru yours
or calling the dealership whom honors that.

Generally a sensor such as that
should not fail on low mileage vehicles.

My '10 has a control knob on the dash that is pushed
to alternate programming and what is displayed there.

I'm not familiar with the later model corolla gauge display
but you are sure your programming is set to display the temp mode ?

Could be as simple as pushing the control knob located to the left
on the gauge... and choose the appropriate display ?

A new sensor might be less than the fee to check it! Either way it's not a needed feature if it's not covered. I own several cars without an outside temp gauge.

^ 'cause I just had to fix yer typo !? Lol

Tho' my temp gauge and sensor work just fine...
I never really set it in that mode for the visual.

Probably cause it really doesn't matter to me...
except maybe for conversation.

Irregardless of what the outside ambient temps are...
one still has to exit their car... inevitably.

Thanks! I was replying so fast I didn't catch the error! I did the same few you too! Irregardless isn't really a word though it's used all the time it's not correct. The word "regardless" is used no matter what version you are thinking. I learned this one from my English teacher grandma! :lol:

Funny about the readout though, I leave it on outside temp all the time. Maybe it's out of curiosity. I have a Scangauge so I can get many of the other items on that. :grin:

But a typo is just a simple error, not using a word that isn't correct at all! :lol:

Why do you set yours at no info at all? I don't even have that option on my 2009. There is always something showing so that's why I leave it on the outside temp.

Usage Discussion of irregardless

Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century.
Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927.

The most frequently repeated remark about it is that “there is no such word.”
There is such a word, however.

It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose.
Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance.

So use regardless instead.

damn PC whiner's
...feel better !? :rolleyes: :dunno:

That crooked Hillary would probably use it.
But not likely the Donald...
...because he's not an educated scheming lawyer. ;)

Now that is funny! :lol: Pretty much what my grandma told me many years ago and has been confirmed by several friends of mine that are English teachers. Another word that pisses them off is "towards" but the proper word is "toward" and is used as a singular or plural meaning. :lol: So much for our lesson of the day. :grin:

Now back to our normal programming........
