Check Engine Light Diagnosis and Repair
In 1970, the average car had only $25.00 worth of electronics. By 1981 the average car contained over $1000.00 in electronics, by 1996 it included over $3500.00 in electronics, and by 2000 that figure had risen to $5900.00 in electronics! That figure is still rising.
Today, vehicles’ computers operate everything from air conditioning, radios, air bags, alarm systems, anti-lock braking systems, traction control, ride control, and cruise control to electronic digital and analog instrument panels, automatic transmissions and emissions and engine controls. These computers can cost from $250.00 to as much as $4500.00 depending on what they control.
However instead of using proper diagnostic procedures, some do-it yourselfers and so-called professionals resort to trial-and-error parts swapping when they don’t know how to fix a computer or performance problem.
Since car dealers and parts suppliers refuse to allow returns on electronic components (due to possible damage), that may leave you, the consumer, with expensive parts you didn’t need.
In fact, the major manufacturers have reported that as many as 80% of all computers brought in for repair were found to be OK!
