Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.
I have been in the auto repair business with my own shops since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problem with the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computer data/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; we just diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. I am also going to direct you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please be patient and permit me to do what I do best.
I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you through it.

Hopefully you have insurance and they will pay for this incident, and I strongly advice against wrecking yard modules. they are NOT protected from the elements, they get wet and they are also not guaranteed because they are electrical parts. What if they were hit by lightning too. Lastly, all those modules need to be programmed with a factory scan tool. Sorry i had to tell you this, but it's all true and one heck of a gamble.

Thanks, Ron

they were off a good car that have never been damaged or wet before...I also have a scan tool. I just need to know where every computer is in the car so I don't waste time and take stuff out for no reason. so please let me know asap
