If it took 2 days to diagnose that the pressure was good and the sensor was shot along with a bill that large, whoever was working on that machine is ripping you off, that's a dealer or mechanic problem. I had a brand new pickup give me low oil pressure warnings, it was also a sensor and not the actual motor. They tested the pressure and replaced the sensor in about 15 minutes.

On the same token if the oil pressure had been low and you kept running, what would the end result be? More than 2 days down and a lot more than $1500.

In any event I'm not going to change anyone's mind. Just next time someone asks for help with an electronic problem, maybe the best course of action is to reply with something helpful for the guy who was looking for help. Pointing out that the electronic problem that they are having is a "stupid waste of time and money and corporations stealing from you" doesn't get this guys combine going any faster.

I hate all kinds of breakdowns, mechanical and electrical. I do hate the electrical breakdowns more because I don't understand it, which I think is the same reason most others don't either.

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

To even get a Dealer mechanic on site here is $750, before they even turn a spanner!

So yes it does p*ss me when stupid never ending electronic glitches that require a factory laptop to turn the little light off turn profit into loss.

Fair enough.

That's criminal, $750 for a service call is ridiculous.

I say keep whining. They will make it so the monitor can do as much as a laptop if you know how. Then I see a yearly fee with remote hook up available. To avoid those $1000 service calls just to delete a code or make a can bus part work. All this stuff is very nice when it works. We can not afford the down time or the service costs. The companies have to know how serious those things are.
