Ooops. Sorry Steve, But It was me that told the guy with the Rover 75 that he could do that as the car had 8 fault codes logged including air bag ecu faulty and non of them would clear, I was out when the guy dropped the car off and as I walked in the garage, I was greeted by one of the lads saying that the Rover 75 in the Garage plugged into the T4 machine had 8 faults and The Customers first words had been "IF ITS GOING TO COST MUCH THEN I WON'T BOTHER HAVING IT FIXED" . This always gets my blood boiling as you know that its just another job in the garage that the customer wants us to fix for nothing but in reality its a good few hours work trying to diagnose the true cost of what this vehicle might need to complete the repair. ( like how do we prove that it needs crash sensors and air bags and things like that until a new airbag ecu is fitted, so how can we estimate the repair costs without spending hundreds to start with ?? ) |
I Didn't make the Stupid rules, So all I can do tell the Customers what the Rules are and let them decide which way they want to go.
It always seems to be the same with any rules and regulations, They always make the rule and then put in lots of ways to get around them, If the Rule is there that the air bag light should go out, then it should also come on in the first place. ( No loop holes ) I am seeing car dealers now removing clusters and blanking warning lights off on a regular basis and this is mainly caused by these new stupid rules and as already said some unfortunate customer will buy these cars without knowing what's wrong with it which is a lot worse than the Customer Bodging his own car and knowing the consequences.
