Sometimes it would be more costly for them and reputation. The quick fix is to replace it and take the back to the factory to diagnose for future reference to repairs.

Yes, I see the point, but how does someone owning the vehicle bought in an auction can put the vehicle to run properly?

That will be a legal question, I'm not legal enough.

No, but that is not what I mean, what I mean is how does such electrical problem can be fixed?

By tracing the circuit to the fault, with diag tools.

what about your 10 yr 100k mile warranty
ReplyProfessorG, January 03, 2014, 06:46Master
That's why they want to replace it. By the way the 10yr, 100,000 has to be purchased for bumper to bumper.

The 10 yr 100 k covered first owner thereafter there is no more dealer warranty for 2nd owners and extended warranty was not brought...
