Re: How long does it take to run Diagnostics ... ?

Running a diagnostic check isn't as simple as alot of people think.
Yes plug the computer in and get fault codes.
But what if is a multiplex wiring fault on the immobilser which could have 101 different causes?
Computers don't tell us everything,they just point us in the right direction, and sometimes even point us in the complete wrong direction.
Just think of it as, if it was as easy as plug in a laptop everyone would be doing it and there would be no need for mechanics

Any advice given is exactly that, do not take it as gospel
