I have to admit this isn't where I thought you were going with this but some very good points were made. I have used the owners manual twice recently (last 2 weeks) to confirm the remote start and start stop functions of a vehicle. Thanks for posting.

I’d interject that service information frequently has theory of operation on systems which is copied from the OEM. Many OEMs have available on-line training material that’s available to the aftermarket. An owners manual isn’t going to tell me which module receives the switch input and how the output to the device is managed. It’ll tell me how to check the oil, but it won’t explain how the PCM…

Loved the liability aspect. How you are viewed thru the court of law is important.

16 years of warranty work and the wording has changed a lot. I remember using operating as designed. How does a owners manual explain GM's hard shift under light acceleration or Ford's driveline noise under certain conditions? I always refered customers to TSB's.

I believe its more in the line of a technician attempting verification of proper operation for a system or a command. I experienced a Client Concern on a vehicle that the AC didn't work when it was 30 Degrees out side, The owners guide identified that at low temperature the A/C was designed to remain off, unless you had the defroster on. The system was fine.
