Ambient Temperature Sensor Replacement in San Carlos, CA

Ambient Temperature Sensor Replacement in San Carlos, CA - Toole's Garage

If your vehicle’s air conditioning does not seem to work correctly, yet there are no obvious leaks or other problems, it may be that ambient temperature sensor replacement is needed.  At Toole’s Garage in San Carlos we can diagnose and correct any air conditioning problems.

Our nationally ASE certified technicians can diagnose ambient temperature sensor problems. The sensor measures external temperature, to provide onboard computer with the data it needs to correctly maintain cabin temperature. When it fails, onboard computer does not have correct data to maintain cabin temperature.

One of the symptoms that can alert you that the ambient temperature sensor may need replacement is the failure of the automatic AC settings to maintain pre-set temperature. Another symptom, even more obvious, is inconsistent cabin temperature. When the sensor sends inconsistent information, onboard computer gets confused and varies cabin temperature in seemingly random ways.

When our nationally ASE certified technicians diagnose your vehicle, they use cutting-edge digital tools to talk to the onboard computer, and use that information to guide their diagnostic path. They have extensive air conditioning diagnostic and repair experience, and can diagnose a wide range of ac problems, including ambient temperature sensor issues.  If the ambient temperature sensor needs to be replaced, we can perform this repair the same day (subject to parts availability). All repairs performed at our San Carlos repair shop are carry our nationwide 36 months / 36,000 miles warranty.  

So if your vehicle’s AC is behaving in strange ways, or simply refuses to work, call Toole’s Garage and make an appointment to get it checked out and fixed. We can offer you a local Lyft/Uber ride so you can go about your day while your vehicle is at the shop. We also offer online appointments that can be made on our website.
