Electrical Parts Warranty Policy 


All USED Electronic Parts are sold “As Is”, do not come with any warranty or guarantee (unless otherwise specified) and are considered Final Sales (no refunds or returns).  NEW and REBUILT electronic parts are returnable if not removed from packaging, have not been installed on a vehicle and comply with all other requirements listed in return policy.

Diagnosing problems with Electronic parts on Z cars is challenging.  Z Car Source strongly suggests that all work be done using factory service manuals and is carried out by experienced technicians. It is especially difficult to perform diagnostic testing of Air Flow Meters, Air Mass Sensors and Engine Control Units (ECU’s, also known as computers, brains, ECM’s, etc.)   These items are especially prone to misdiagnosis and will follow the one-time re-test procedure outlined in this policy.  Please note our return policy listed above for new, used and rebuilt parts.

Warranty - Rebuilt Electronic Parts (including but not limited to ECU’s AFM’s AMS’s, and Distributors) provided through Z Car Source are tested and verified by the builder and come with a 6 month warranty against builder defect.  New Electronic Parts purchased through Z Car Source come with the manufacturer’s warranty.  Please contact Z Car Source for length and terms of warranties, as they vary by manufacturer.  Used Electronic Parts purchased from Z Car Source do not come with any warranty or guarantee.  They are sold on an “As Is” basis, and may not be returned.

Warranty Claims - To file a claim during the warranty period, the customer must ship the complete rebuilt part back to Z Car Source.  Please be sure to properly pack the package, to prevent damage during shipping.  Z Car Source recommends that all packages are shipped in a trackable manner (UPS, Fed Ex, etc…) and fully insured for their purchase price.  Z Car Source will not be responsible for any lost shipments (or parts within the shipment), or damage to the shipment while in transit, and all shipping costs are the customer’s responsibility.  Z Car Source will not accept any COD’s.

Once Z Car Source receives the part(s) for review, the part will be tested for performance.

  1. If the part tests as “Good,” the part(s) will be returned to the customer for re-installation. Z Car Source will deem this a one-time re-test service and return the “Good,” re-tested part(s) back to the customer. It will be determined that the part(s) are good and not the cause of the condition.

   2. If the part(s) tests as “Bad,” and is due to warranty related issues*, Z Car Source, will (at its discretion) repair or replace the part(s) and  reimburse the customer for shipping charges no greater than “Ground  Shipping.”

*If the part(s) was damaged due to incorrect installation or other vehicle issues not related to the quality of the part provided by Z Car Source, and requires repair or to be rebuilt, the customer will be notified before the unit is repaired/rebuilt and billed accordingly. There is no warranty on new or rebuilt electrical parts that fail due to incorrect installation or misdiagnosis.
