problem #1

I have a 2009 Camry. Since my gas gauge was continuously reading empty I took it to dealer. The dealer indicate the vehicle was in warranty until March 2012 but that because water droplets were found in the tank the 'Sender' had burned out and was not sending the correct gas level to the dash's gauge and that it was not covered by the warranty.

I understand the the sender should have had some tolerance to some level of liquid humidity and should not have failed. This failure of sender should have been covered by the warranty.

They indicated that many pumps had gone bad by water being deposited in tanks of their vehicles but they had no history of replacing senders. The pump works fine and the car runs great, but the gauge in the dash was the only problem.

Should it have been repaired under warranty?
