    Trust me guys...and I'm not just saying this because I am a technician at a big GM dealer. Taking your car to the dealer to fix it isn't a bad or scary thing. In most cases it will save you money. The dealer isn't going to guess and throw parts at your car, they have the knowledge and tools to do the proper tests and determine what part is failing. I can't tell you how many times we get cars in the shop that a customer or an independent shop has thrown $1000 worth of parts or more at it and it's still not fixed. Most times it ends up being a wiring or junk aftermarket part issue. Guess what...if they would have brought it to us from the get go, they would have been fixed and back on the road for under $300! Instead they paid the independent shop $1000 and the dealer $300, it just doesn't make sense to me. But, if you are working on your car because you enjoy it and don't care how long it takes and don't mind wasting money on parts that didn't need to be replaced...that's another story. Just keep in mind that the dealer might have seen the issue you are having with your car 100 times, we fix cars for a living not just a hobby. I'm glad your car is fixed.
