Tip & How-To about Cars & Trucks
When purchasing any new electronically controlled appliance, car, fridge, dishwasher, television or whatever in order to keep from going mad and pulling all your hair out when the unit stops working and displays a dummy code like T2133 and refuses to work, you MUST INSIST the dealer you are buying the unit from supply the service manual and ALL fault codes and their definitions for whatever make and model you are buying. Insist they provide the manuals as part of the conditions of the sale. If they will not provide them, don't buy the item from that manufacturer, try another one. If more and more people start demanding the service and code manuals manufacturers will have to start providing them Be aware appliance manufacturers still make the older versions of washers, dryers and fridges with non-electronic controls (i.e. ones you can easily fix yourself) but you have to order them, very few dealers still carry them. Check with your dealer to see what you can order.
