Icon13 Honda Stealership

Yes, so it seems, I should listen to my dad more often. He was warning me about taking my prelude to the dealership, but i had already dropped it off...Now, theyre going to inevitably charge me the standard $85 checkout fee for just LOOKING at the car. Now...I JUST got off the phone with the ASSistant service manager and he just informed me that my ATTS control unit went bad and they were getting a code for a broken reverse light. I know what the code is, cuz i just changed all my exterior lights to LEDs.

Now...onto to the control unit...650 BONES...JUST for the part, which will take about a week to get there. Theres no telling how much theyll rape me on labor!

Im scared...someone help me...please.

pay them the 85 bills and go pick up your car. get an atts control unit on ebay or on one of the forums. do the swap yourself, reset the computer. BAM!

1. nobody makes aftermarket parts for the atts. bet on that. the technology is still hush hush because honda is currently using it on some of their new vehicles.
2. Ebay gets a bad rap because people are dumb and buy the junk instead of taking time to search for the great items on there.
3. have fun paying a small fortune to honda
good day.

Hes not talking about some random aftermarket BS, I am pretty sure he is talking about finding a actually good ATTS unit from either a wreck or someone who decided to do away with their ATTS and getting their unit

Sorry guys...I wasn't completely dismissing yall's ideas. But Ogs is exactly right. I've heard of nothing but crap being sold on Ebay, but i cant help it. ITs what i see, ya know? Also, I didnt know that there werent aftermarket ATTS units...the guy at the dealership was warning about aftermarket parts (in hindsight, thats his job, to make you want to come back so they can get their money.) Ill definitely look into it, but I'm leaving today...Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

You are correct about the crap, a lot of it is. But OGs is right, they sell many bonafied parts if you are willing to search for them.

Well, i searched on ebay and a few other places and wasnt able to find anything...Also, this lady i know (kind of a friend of a friend of my mom) works in auto parts and her "transmission guy" advised that it was a "dealership only" part and also that even if I did find one NOT from a dealer, it wasnt a good idea. So...im stuck...Somebody...this blows.

A lot of people get bent up about diag fees. Basically, you pay a trained professional to figure out exactly what's wrong with your car in an hour. Then, they tell you what parts you need to fix it and how much time it'll take that professional to do it. It's not like they pay Fred $85 to take a flashlight, listen for a noise and say "Yep, that's yer ATTS right thar. Gonna need a newin"

^LMFAO.......... hahaha yeah.
if you're mechanically inclined and have the tools and space, call a junkyard and source the part. do the repairs yourself. otherwise you have no choice other than to let honda do it.

is that what you need? I have a base not an SH so I'm not 100% familiar with everything.
