How do you approach a customer on an electrical diagnostic that is costly to repair and may or may not be under warranty?

Transparency and clear communication is critical before conducting potentially costly service or repairs. Make sure to explain and detail every step of the process to help ensure your customer understands what service or repairs you will be performing.

What are the differences in fuel level sensor function between model years for some 2006 and 2007 General Motors passenger cars?

The 2006 version of some models has a float level sensor in which the fuel level increases when resistance increases. In 2007, General Motors changed the architecture of the cluster on some vehicles, making the gauge now work ‘backwards.’ Thus, if a fuel level sensor for a 2006 application is installed on a 2007 application, the gauge will read opposite – when the tank is full the gauge shows empty, and when the tank is empty the gauge shows full. The key to prevent this is to check your application. Make sure you are using the correct part for the correct year application.
