As I stated, we repaired the issue and expect no charges from your company as you did not respond when help was needed.
Buick Mechanic: jazzmaster, ASE Certified Tech replied 3 years ago
okay, If you are still charged then you have to call the customer service dept.
I have nothing to do with that part .
We try to be courteous to each other expert and when someone asks for a specific expert we wait to let them answer .
I was being courteous for Anthony and saw that the question still wasn't
t being attended too.
SO, I had asked if you still need help ,that is all .
DON'T let this experience dampen your asking again for future use .
sometimes we are so busy that it is hard to get to peoples issues ,I myself have had questions that I couldn't answer to fast enough ,because I was looking for electrical schematics for a vehicle
while helping someone else .
Perhaps in the future if no one gets to you right away ,then ask if anybody can help you .
Thank you for using Just Answer
glad you found what the problem was ..jazzmaster ...
