Much of that information is indeed available to the public. I bought a
copy (on CD-ROM) of the shop manual for my car. It had everything down
to test point voltages and proprietary OBD codes and settings.
Of course, I then had to pick up a OBD cable and software to hook my
laptop up to my car, but I can pretty much diagnose any problem,
including the electronic ones.
I am aware that some manufacturers don't make that kind of documentation
available, but many still do.
