Q. Why does my computer can cost more than the advertised price?

A. Yes. The part may be returned within 10 days of delivery as long as it is returned in its original condition. The return will be subject to shipping charges as well as programming charges. See our return policy for more information.


Q. What if I or my mechanic misdiagnoses my vehicle’s problem?

A. It is up to you and your mechanic to make sure the vehicle is diagnosed correctly. However, if it does happen you can return it within 15 days of delivery for a refund minus a reprogramming and restocking fee. If you are unsure you have a bad computer, we recommend sending it in for testing.
