So, my Son's 2004 Saturn Ion has 185K on the clock and runs really well. The other day, he needed a jump start and an engineer friend hooked the jumper cables up... BACKWARDS. AN ENGINEER, NO LESS!.
Well, that onboard computer took a little hit. Everything functions well, except that the turn signals don't work unless the lights are on.
A service tech said that it would cost a grand to fix it. I'm thinking that i can find one in a junkyard. They say that even if i do, he'll still have to pay 200 bucks to get it reprogrammed. This makes no sense.
