Computers and Keys Oh My
So a coworker gives me a Ford Ranger. He says the dealer says it needs a new computer and it will cost 1500. Of course, my husband can't believe that so he and a mechanic friend replace all kinds of sensors and things but it still won't start. Next my son sends us a computer (probably from the junk yard). We towed the car to the dealer today and the dealer is claiming that he tried twice but the computer won't work. He also said he needs two keys. I searched the web and it seems he may be right about needing two keys and I wonder how he expected it to work if he only had one. By the way, we do have another key, but hubby says that even if he takes in the key, the dealer is not going to try it again. He wants his 1500. Is my assumption correct that he would need two keys to determine whether the computer is any good?
PS I liked it alot better when cars didn't have computers and my husband could fix everything.
