A manual on a CD would be nice. I really don't care for the generic manuals - they were OK when car lines were similiar to each other, but those days are gone. I understand that specific manuals are available, but the format is new to me - I've got enough trash on my computer already - I really don't need something else.
Does anyone have a copy that can run simply from a CD, or from a hard drive?
I bought my hard copy used on -bay at ~$150 several years ago. It's 6 volumes, each about 2" thick
It's a disappointment compared to the previous Grand Cherokee factory shop manuals I've had. This one is 75%-80% electronic diagnostics geared towards the StarScan tool. Lots of errors and inconsistencies from poor proofreading. Particularly deficient in HEMI drawings and pictures.
If I had it to do over, I would buy the cheaper CD version for 20% of the price and have enough left over for the Chilton Grand Cherokee book. Chilton has errors also, but better pictures. Between the 2, you can do what you need to.
