The troubleshooting thread is primarily for digging in to the technical details to figure what is causing the failures. This thread is about an idea i've had for an On-Board Chargger & DCDC Converter repair service for non-usa cars.
i thought we were going to be on our own to make OBC repairs, and this got real serious after mine failed. Thank goodness, Mits came thru with the extended warranty
But over the past couple of years i have collected lots of extra OBC parts, boards and boxes from salvage cars and broken donor units--even bought 2 complete salvage units from Japan (very expensive shipping, but still cheaper than buying a new unit).
Now that these are covered under warranty, nobody in the US will need to make these repairs, so i would like to offer an exchange service for those without the warranty to swap out parts or entire OBC units to help you get it working again. There would need to be some nominal charges to cover expenses and shipping, but i'm not looking at this as a profit-venture.
If anyone in the US does get their OBC replaced under warranty, please ask to get your old unit back. There will likely be a month or two before they get the scrap report and can release it. We can recycle these for parts and cores to repair other units. Just drop them in any mailbox, i'll pay the shipping.
