thanks.. We are supposed to take it back to him on Tuesday or Wednesday. Also read someplace that to check the fuses, and to try to disconnect the battery for a while and connect it back may reset the problem..ever heard of that? -

Sure; But if there's no com then it could be a wiring issue, B+ and grounds to the computer could be the reason for your problem. The mechanic should have known that and addressed that issue first. If that wasn't stated on the first visit, then you need to find someone else that knows what they're doing. -
