Just got a GMC pickup (recently got a Cadillac also) and went to the
service guys to get the shop books. Things have changed quite a lot
since my last purchase about 10 years ago.
Apparently the books are on CD now and cost around $800, each.
The service guy was able to find the GMC manual in paper but it was
What the heck? This is really expensive just so I can understand come
computer codes or track down an electrical problem.
Even if there is a Haynes available they don't cover the computer
systems interface, use and error codes.
Anyone have any insight on this? Know where a more reasonably priced
documentation set is available?
What really shocks me about this is what GMC/Chevy/Cadillac's mind set
is regarding these doc sets. I wouldn't suggest piracy as a solution
but electronic media at that cost would seem to open the door to a
variety of bootleg issues. Guess it's a philosophical issue, I don't
get it though.
