Dear costumer i was checking if this model have a main battery protector and if it is you can do the work connected to it with no problem. the thing you cannot do is to mess with electric cable, i mean you cannot cut them to change connectors or something like because it can cause chort circuit and its complicated, but if itis just a replacing job is ok just rememberto restore the codes after the job is done through a diagnostic equipment.
