There is alot of info on this CD including wiring diagrams, component
locations and detailed repair procedures. For instance: if there is
a TSB related to a relay, their location diagrams show where ALL the
relays are. The repair procedures are good, but they assume you have
a base mechanical knowledge. The CD also has maintenance schedules.
One downfall is that it does not support clipboard functions so if you
want to cut/paste info, it is not possible unless you use some sort of
screen capture utility or you can use a prn2file utility because it
does support printing.
I think you pretty much get what the shops get but limited to one
vehicle. This CD is TSBs only. The manual is another 24.95 I
If you are considering buying this, you should check out their web
site to see some sample info. http//www.aldata.com

Can you describe the contents of tyour CD? I suspect the shops get
the full manuals and drawings for the increased $$$$.....
