It costs the Techs here money each day to provide you with quality information. If you do not click ACCEPT you are hurting the Techs that help you, and it will show on your Ask/Accept ratio on your account, which will make it harder for you to get your next question answered. If the information you are given helps you, click ACCEPT. You are saving money by asking your question here rather than paying diagnostic fees, or going to your local Dealer, so do the right thing, and Click Accept to pay your tech!

 

I was just doing a follow-up to see how you made out? If you have any follow-up questions, please ask! I see you have made a deposit, but have not yet clicked Accept. If you need more help, please ask. If you have made a deposit, but have not clicked Accept, you will still be charged your deposit amount. Just Answer will be paid, however, the Tech that actually helped you, Me, does not! Please support the Techs that bring the quality information and services that make Just Answer the great site that it is!
