Answer 2
A scanner or a Digital Storage oscilloscope. When you say dealer, do you mean you let them have the vehicle to diagnose the problem. -
Comment 1
Yes - the car was taken to the dealer garage with this problem and they could not offer a solution. Thank you for the suggestion - I'm having another shop look at it -
Comment 2
Unfortunately, just because they sell the vehicle doesn't mean they know how to fix the vehicle. Some dealerships don't know how to charge for diagnostics. Therefore the tech won't spend the time to fix it. -
