Thanks for doing this. Mode $06 is about to under go more changes and Paul said a lot in this podcast. I will point out one of them. Mode $06 results do not always indicate whether a component is near failing or not based on how close the result is to a min or max. Listen to his converter result closely.

You're welcome Randy and yes, I learned a lot from this and I've listened to this episode several times. I really hope that this gets out to the industry and those who need the knowledge. And most of all I hope to get Paul on to discuss more as well!
