Came across https://www.techauthority.com/ which provides some service info including service manuals and training manuals to purchase.​

Offers subscriptions including short-term, I haven’t had the time to fully figure out to what information that gives access to, appears it provides much including data to update SW in modules using some scan tools.​

It is a great idea, and a start, but the search function is not adequate, applicable years are not always given for the manuals, not enough detail such as depth in training manual, no e-version of documents AFAIK (some are on CD, some paper print-on-demand), and actual ordering is clunky at best (at this moment I cannot get items into shopping cart).​

At $14. the paper training manuals sound reasonable.​

It does look like they are trying to clear out their remaining obsolete paper manual stock. This could be a great opportunity to get a factory service manual and diagnostic procedures manuals for what you own at a decent price.
Chrysler ended paper service manuals after the 2004 model year. Paper owners manuals have continued for now.

And I see pirate copies(?) on the internet for under $10 although I can't vouch for their content.
The price of a service manual has to be looked at like buying a tool. Sometimes knowing how to do something will make it pay for itself the first time you use it.
I thought that with the closure of so many dealerships in 2009, that the internet would be flooded with used service manuals and special tools.
Alldata is a service manual information website that is mostly, but not always complete. You need a subscription to access it. A local main public library used to have a subscription to it until it got cut back. Some libraries do have factory manuals for loan (many '60's, '70's, and '80's). You can find Chiltons, Haynes, Mitchells and Motor service information for most vehicles, but nothing is better than a factory manual. Support your local library.
Sometimes if you Google what part of a particular car you are trying to fix, something, even just a diagram or video shows up and can help.
