Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I was also looking for a better service manual as the ones I have are inaccurate. Even the owners manual hasnt got the correct information for the fuse locations.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I would like to know what voltages to expect where and if there is a fuse involved and where to trace wiring to in order to determine if the problem is a component like the computer or wiring and where to find the components. Also will the obd report a code for the problem? I don't have a reader yet but I will.

Hello, welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is*****'m a Certified Auto Technician with 27+ years experience. I will do my best to assist you. please keep in mind that I may need to ask questions of you before I can answer. When you reply please feel free to add as much detailed information as possible pertaining to your concern.

My recommendation at this point is to scan for the "Diagnostic Trouble Codes" (DTC's) from the onboard computers. The DTC's are used as the Starting Point for diagnosis. They let you know which system(s) the fault is in. This information is of great value for correct diagnosis. As a Technician, my first course of action is normally to scan for the DTC's. If you can obtain these codes, we can more accurately and efficiently diagnose the problem. You can borrow a code reader for FREE at your local auto part store (AutoZone, O'Reileys, Advanced, etc.). They just require a refundable deposit to cover the tool until you return it... If you post these Diagnostic Trouble Codes here, I can obtain the most accurate information to help you diagnose the Concern, and then point you towards the correct repair. Keep me posted and let me know if you have additional questions...

Thank you,

Robert
