ROUTINE maintenance work and fault finding is all done in-house. Understanding the modern technology of cars is crucial to problem solving. Karen Richards, proprietor, is a mechanical electrical engineer and approaches the issues in a methodical manner to eliminate the possible causes in order, and not using a haphazard (and sometimes costly) approach.
Fault finding and investigation is charged at £36 inc VAT, which is deductable from any resulting work.
The CAN BUS system causes the biggest headache. There is no longer just one connection from battery to electric window, not anymore. There are probably 3 computers in your car that need to talk to each other in the right order just to open the window, and so an electrical logical approach is needed. This is often how main dealers hold the control because some software is not released. However, we have had our fair share of repairs around ECU, BSI and re-programming the car back to full operational order.
