Thanks Jack - totally get it.
Salvaged - 14.5k miles, car was in an accident - front end (see photos). I am not sure if it is out of dealer warranty - not sure. Dented body, and from inspection, dented radiator on bottom plus some other front engine bay issues (possibley a motor mount as I hear a clunk on acceleration) and some louver code.
I am looking to get the car mecanically evaluated and a list of what needs to be done moving forward. I got two codes when we put the reader in - P1E00 (possibly generic power train or ac compressor or Hybrid Powertrain Control Module 2 Requested MIL Illumination ) - and U0284 (lost communication with Active Grill Air Shutter). Runs great, instruments all work well, audio is great. Replacing seatbelts and doing the body work on it. AC/ Heat not working right, but the heated seats and steering wheel are full on!
Got the orange car with the explamation point light (no one seems to know that that is - a few therories I have read on here). So I wanted someone other than the dealer to look at it. Someone with good experience working on Bolts in Los Angeles or OC. Really hard to find someone with a lot of experience and the dealers seem to be hit or miss on them depending on the dealer.
I also am avoiding the dealer as I have read the orange car and exclamation point could potentially be the HV Realy (hard to get part) and they seem to impound your car until it is fixed.
Looking for input from the Forum. Thanks in advance.
