Beathustler, you might be able to get a copy of your diagnostics report from the dealer from your previous visit...this might be a cheap (free) starting point. Also, I think there may be a board member or two with some diagnostic stuff in ATL there...you may want to try tracking one of them down. Even just being able to pull basic faults (using INPA or something similar) is often very helpful.
Were there any signs of trouble before all this happened? "Recharge battery" warnings? Hesitating / slow cranking when starting the engine? Dim or pulsing lights? Dead flat battery during first cold night?
