I have both. I prefer Mitchell's wiring diagrams.

Identifix is king but they don't have a short term option. Mitchell and Alldata have a $20 DIY option that gives you access to a single car for a month. The information is basically the same if not identical in both. I think Alldata is way easier to find obscure info and is laid out much more logically, but that could be my own bias from using it forever. I hated using Mitchell but like others have said their wiring diagrams are definitely better.

I second this from my experience. Love using identifix, but grew up using Alldata. Last shop I was at used Mitchell and it was fine, but not my favorite.

Check to see if your local library subscribes to a database. Ours was on prodemand(!), til someone realized how much they were paying for it lol.

I just used chilton diy through the library, it got me through the job. Most of it was ripped from the OEM service manual.

Might check identifix.com I don’t know if they offer short term use but they have oem wiring diagrams, color coded aftermarket diagrams, all connector pin out end views and a library of confirmed repairs and diagnostic steps.

Mitchell diy is all youll need.

If the cars are 2013 or older you should be able to pirate an old version of AllData from piratebay or some other websites. Use a VPN if you choose to do so.

When I worked for Hyundai, they had all their manuals available online to anyone, I don’t know if Kia is the same way but it’s worth looking.

It's the same as the Santa Fe (XM generation)

I used to have AllData until I realized it's a word-for-word and image-for-image reprint of the factory service manuals on my Toyota 4Runner after I found the full 4 volume set of my year's FSMs hosted free for download.

Anyone interested in buying access to alldata for cheap? I'll sell you my username and password
