Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Chevy. The Chevy Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Just trying to find the least expensive route.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Chevy Mechanic should know about your Chevy?

Mileage is 94,000 + if that helps.

Hello, my name is***** is correct, the module costs around $400 and it is about a hour labor to install so around $500 total. You can buy module yourself on ebay for around $100 which will save you $300. Here is a link to buy module, let me know if you have more questions. Thanks.
