Dear Doctor: I recently opened a small repair shop out of my garage at home. Things are going well, but I am running into a lot of electrical problems that I’m unfamiliar with and have to refer the vehicle to another shop or the dealer. Do you have any suggestions on how I can get help with these and other problems? Steven
Dear Steven: Do not feel badly about this, as I have learned no one has all the answers to today’s complex vehicles. At both of my shops, we use Alldata and Identifix for help when needed. There is no way we could make the proper repairs without the correct information. Alldata has a special going on for $99 for the first three months. Call toll free 1-800-829-8727; use code HBF6 for the discount.
