Just expressing an opinion that I keep in mind when buying new cars. All companies hurt from time to time but I can buy service manuals for tvs, vcrs, microwave ovens, and home stereos. I guess it depends on how much a company wants to do what's in the best interest of their customers vs. What makes them the most profit after the sale. Thank you for the explanation, but the fact is they still produce the radio service manuals, (I've seen them), I just can't buy them.
Hi saturntech9. Sounds like the percentage of these bad stepper motors wasn't real big. "Tens of thousands" out of millions of cars built isn't that bad. I CAN see where one could short and affect other things on the same circuits like warning lights and other functions. Certainly can't say from experience but I haven't heard any other explanation that makes more sense. We read about the same symptoms over and over on this site from lots of people so I suspect a random component failure or bad solder connections isn't the answer.
