We have invested in expensive diagnostic equipment, the use of which offers us the best information available.
We charge £54.00 for the first initial diagnostics, this includes a full printout of the problem. If further investigative work is required, this will have to be scheduled in prior to being able to provide an estimate for any repair works that are needed.
If it's a simple fix then we will sort it there and then.
All vehicles are different and use different types of protocol to talk to all the control units. To fix an electrical problem may take only 30 minutes, but the correct diagnosis should be carried out first and can take an up to hour, sometimes more.

Over the years we have been asked to fix problems that were diagnosed elsewhere, in most cases the problem wasn't corrected, which meant it had been diagnosed incorrectly in the first place. We want to ensure the problem is fix the first time around.
