I have a 2012 Honda Civic EX coupe and the outside temperature stopped working. It just shows dashes where the temperature should be displayed. Does anyone know whats wrong? Is it covered under warranty? Thanks!

Sounds like somethings wrong with the temp. sensor. It is covered under warranty so I'd just run it by the dealer.

The main sensor is located under the bumper, then I believe theres a piece that goes under the dash. I cant remember where I saw the blueprints ........think it was on college hills honda's website or on another similar post on here way back. Someone asked if the sensors were on the LX's and just disabled, but after research the sensors arent there and would have to be purchased/installed. I'd like it myself, but I'm sure a dealer would charge an arm and leg to install it.

I got the sensor. Just need the factory manual and harness I hope. In my LX there is a large unused connector in the engine compartment on the firewall.

I had the same question about adding temp reading. I have an LX and I currently just bought the Fog light kit to install. Now I'm wondering if I can install the temp sensor.

I looked at and compared the part number for the engine wiring harness of the LX and EX. They are different and the EX harness cost less. Also the LX part number is different. Now is It true the Canadian LX models all have exterior temperature. There are 5 Canadian harnesses with the same part numbers.

EX. AT HARNESS 1 Part Number 32200-TR0-A20
LX MT Harness 1 Part Number 32200-TR0-A40
LX AT Harness 1 Part Number 32200-TR0-A00

Stupid question: If you install the sensor, is the LX i-mid capable of displaying the outside temp?

I would be pissed if the temp didn't appear after installing the sensor only to find out I need some sort of software update or new i-mid display unit.

Did anyone figure out if it was possible to add this to a LX? Was the harness already there to allow any easy install of the temp sensor?

I had some time this evening and took off the front bumper on my LX coupe. Well I was able to see where the sensor would mount and where a cut out in some of the trim is where the wires would run, but I did not see any wiring or connectors that were tucked/taped back. So I am unfortunately assuming it's not as simple as just buying the temp sensor.
