As vehicle complexity rises, so do challenges in the process of diagnosing issues with an increased number of electronic vehicle components. What’s essential is to determine the root cause of a symptom rather than applying a temporary solution that will likely manifest itself again and lead to unnecessary downtime.

Not accurately detecting the root cause when a vehicle is initially in the shop leads to lost labor hours and potentially wasted parts. Diagnosis time is also critical to technicians, service centers, and fleets. But a simple checklist is all you need to improve your processes. A checklist of common root causes will speed the process for many day-to-day repairs.

Coupled with the skills and knowledge to perform advanced diagnostics when needed, a technician armed with a well-defined routine is certain to improve a shop’s operation.
