Re: P0124 diag code - replaced teromstat?

Reading a code for free is often not worth what you pay for it.

With a code I can go to a BMW forum and and the vast majority of the time I can get 2-3 ideas on how to test for an issue - just from a code. If that code can be gotten for free - it is hardly not worth anything.

I agree, the systems like my tech uses is more sophisticated and vehicle specific then the ones at the parts stores. But in this particular case, I question what the added value was, particularly at $167.00.

I would also question.

It all comes back to a pet peeve of mine.

There needs to be more communication, and hopefully (earned) trust between the tech/shop and customer.

I agree. In this case, an eighty-something lady who knows nothing about cars and depends on a shop's communications, discretion and integrity deserved a bit more than what she got.
