From memory, that code is Incorrect Ratio?  If so, check fluid level, but its probably too late.

Tech2 can diagnose these errors with ease.

However, the Autel hasn't done a bad job, and suspect it could do more if the operator knew how to use it.  But its clearly highlighting the left servo motor isn't responding as the ECU expects.

Look it’s simple... jobs for ‘the boys’.. grease here, grease there, for the time it saves it’s ludicrous and who wants to go there in the first place?

I think they are talking 15 -20 minutes quicker?  :-\

AND, more importantly, it frees up paths for stoppers plus freight on the east/west coast mainline  (which most forget)  :y

Exactly, the existing lines are running at full capacity,,as are the passenger trains.  But all some are seeing is, yes, the massive cost of building the high speed lines to meet the needs of the rest of this century. ;)
I regularly get on both existing lines that serve between Birmingham and London. Ignoring the 7:20 - 8:30am rush, the trains are short and still empty.  I frequently get a whole carriage almost to myself.

If you need more track capacity, then reduce the frequency of these passenger services to make room for freight...


Because HS2 has no stops, and only a small percentage of people want to go from Birmingham to London, the HS2 trains will remain near empty, leaving the existing 2 lines carrying pretty much the same number of people.


Remember the maths is for well over a million people a day to use it (Phase 1) at full fare, with a 60% taxpayer subsidy.  I'd wager it won't even get 1 million passengers a year, let alone a day.  It will be too much of a burden to run, so will need to be closed down.  Which will leave a scar on the rural landscape, piss many people who have been displaced, and leave the country an as yet undecided £xx billion (Phase 1 won't stop at £50b, and will easily quadruple in the next 6 years) worse off in construction.

So it does not take thousands of workers to build the line
They wont be taxpayers, and they will put nothing back into the local economy. In fact they will damage the local economies.  Our local council is already running up huge costs due to this.

Credit where it's due, he did an infinitely better job of running Lundun than both the previous and current incumbents combined ;)
How did those water cannons work out in the end ?

I have one, but rarely use it...

… as the proper, industrial fly killer on top of the fridge is far more effective...  ...though sometimes big flys fry a bit on it, and set off the fire alarm ;D

I used to stick the label supplied with the cam belt kit on the driver's door pillar, with a mileage and a date.
I find those peel off by themselves, although I stuck mine under bonnet.

If TB had used a spreadsheet he would not have forgotten when cam belts had been changed, which started this part of the thread off ::) ::) ::) :P
A spreadsheet is a tool for doing complex calculations on a set of numbers. *NOT* for creating tables  >:(

Every mechanic I know blames CAN when they don't understand CAN  :y
This is as true as 30 years ago when every mechanic blames the engine ECU for everything.

There is nothing difficult about CANBUS from a diags perspective, its just its "new"* and mechanics# distrust what they haven't grasped.


* New as in most car designs for the last 15+ years have used it almost exclusively

# Term used in the loose sense, to cover the usual knuckle draggers found at all dealerships
