Properly trained factory technicans are not cheap by the hour, but they are way cheaper for time and material work related to engine electrical controls. A factory tech will focus troubleshooting on the bad parts based upon vast experience with cars just like yours and replace only the defective part, charging you full list of course. The time to repair and parts cost will be minimized, so your bill will be low as possible.

An Indy with generic experience will hunt and peck around at half the hourly rate. They will either learn how to troubleshoot the system on your dime or they will replace a bunch of good parts after guessing, charging you labor for each. Then they will brag how they found so much bad stuff and say they gave you a parts discount.

The Indy job works OK for certain mechanical and body work, but seldom on electrical systems. You will be charged for trial and error plus time they spend learning about your car.
