People On Here Need To Check Out Alldata or Identifix Personal Use Subscriptions

The absolute best manuals you will ever find are from alldata.com, identifix, and similar sites. The ones that the pros use. The ones with COLOR brand, MOTOR brand, and OEM diagrams and manuals all in one plus so much more. Don't freak about the $200 a month price though...that's for pros. You can get a 2-year subcription for a single vehicle for $30, and it covers all kinds of stuff. You get all the OEM manuals...all of them...plus you get all the modernized remade color wiring diagrams and whatnot. You also get access to repair flow charts, real world repair data, component locations, repair and replace info, part #'s, specification data, etcetera. I really don't get how no one on this site has used these or talks about them. They will drop $80 for one tiny little really bad quality manual that is just one of the tons you get with alldata, but won't spend $30 for an alldata personal single vehicle subscription. You can download the manuals & diagrams in pdf format also. You print to pdf. Sadly, you lose the interactive nature of the remade diagrams, but they are still AWESOME. And you'll have the whole searchable interactive website for 2 years for $30 or 5 for $50. Best money I ever spent. I eliminated a parasitic draw, diagnosed a bad crank sensor circuit, and found a short in my starter circuit all this past week!

Here is a link to "Test Drive" Identifix for free to get an idea of what they offer. The test drive only gives you access to...I think it's a 2007 Honda Civic, but you'll see the type of data they have for all the vehicles. And yes they have the fancy stuff even for the older Mercedes despite the OEM manuals being terrible. Right now they are also running a $1 14 day free trial to get access to all the vehicles. I might suggest a free trial followed by frantic downloading of everything you can get your greedy little paws on while it lasts.

Interesting. I would have done this a while ago had I known about it. Better late than never I suppose! Thanks for the tip



FWIW, the site for Alldata is www.alldatadiy.com
