Did You know that your car may have more computing power than the Apollo mission to the moon? Modern cars are getting very technically managed. Some cars have up to 10 on board computers that control their engines, alarms, electrical circuits, radios, seats, convertible tops, braking systems, safety devices, traction control, emissions and climate controls. These computers have up to 88 wires to them controlling lots of different devices.
This immense complexity coupled with the other normally occurring mechanical problems and fuel quality irregularities, can make diagnostics very difficult. The newer "smarter" fault recording computers help us by recording certain problems that we can recover but are by no means an easy fool proof way to repair.
Intermittent problems are the nightmare of both the owner and the garage that repairs the car. For many years it was relatively easy for a competent technician to correctly repair a problem in just one visit making everyone happy. This is no longer true with these types of systems. Just the massive number of single components (that number in the 100’s of 1000’s when figuring in CPU components) can make a mathematical jungle of almost impossible magnitude to trace a cause of intermittent failure.
To add to the problem it is virtually impossible to pre-plan the amount of time it will take to do the job. Unlike a water pump or service, the complete task is complicated by the intermittent aspect of the problem. We must get it to act up. Adding further to the situation is the fact that it is incorrect to assume it has only one source.
It would be both economically wiser and physically easy for us to take the more common route of refusing these types of challenges by sending you to the Dealership, but we want you to have an alternative as well as prove to you our desire to be your best most complete choice.
As a commitment toward both our customers and our goal of providing the most complete and highest quality service, we have purchased the finest diagnostics systems available. However, this system is still not the ultimate answer for these types of problems. The final ingredient is your patients and understanding.
Some Faults are stored in the E.C.U. System and are download in the form of codes and Numbers. Downloaded in the form of K.A.M. (Keep Alive Active Memory)
Your cars air conditioning system can loose up to 15% of its refrigerant every year
A poorly performing car air conditioning system can cause a build up of fungus, bacteria and other microbes growing inside the evaporator core, causing a smell, sometimes an allergic reaction and can lead to legionnaires disease.
At our garage in Kidderminster we can repair, replace and test your vehicles air conditioning with our specialist equipment.
