>>364>the line between auto mechanic and electrician will be blurred significantly
this is nearly the case already. i will only consider older vehicles now because i do not want to be bothered with the specifics of auto electronics/sensors and with new model cars it can be cramped and difficult to get hands on things without annoying disassembly.
somewhat related story. friend who moves from remote rural north to remote rural south. took their truck with an improvised block heater to a local garage for a tune up. at first glance garage guy sees heater battery and improvised wiring and immediately says, i'm sorry but we can't work on hybrids here. friend had to explain what was under the hood. garage guy was like, i've heard of those but never seen one up close before.
