Operate Solo strange behaviour

πŸ“ž Called out to an Optare Solo today with intermittent strange behavior. Intermittent unexpected wipers, doors occasionally functioning etc.

πŸ’‰ After customer described symptoms, we immediately knew there was a fault with the CAMU/IOU systems. Customer had tried swapping IOU units to different locations which seemed to fix the issue temporarily. This was just coincidence.

πŸ‘¨β€πŸ« Fortunately we have manufacturer level tools to help pinpoint and diagnose the fault. Software pointed out exactly where to look for the issue.

πŸ”Œ Initially the IOU didn’t look too bad but once removed, full extent of the damage was revealed. Spare IOU fitted and vehicle road tested.

βœ”οΈ Customer happy with repair and vehicle put back in to service!
