Tips for finding an auto electrician who can fix a a 2011 Great Wall V240

Asked by Carol

I need an auto electrician who can fix a 2011 Great Wall V240. I have tried auto electricians and also dealers near me, but they don’t have the special tools. Can anyone help?

Parts and service supply has been a bit of an ongoing problem for some owners of these earlier Chinese-made Great Wall commercial vehicles. Some were sidelined for extended periods after some service parts were hard to locate and it’s doubtful that Covid and its attendant supply-chain problems have helped in that regard.

I’m a bit surprised, however, to learn that a Great Wall dealership lacks the tools and techniques necessary to carry out just about any maintenance task, including electrical jobs. Perhaps a call to Great Wall’s Australian customer service number might do the trick. If your nearest dealers don’t have the necessary equipment, perhaps there’s another dealer a little farther away that does. Failing that, try one of the many online forums for a solution. Chances are your vehicle won’t be the only one with this specific problem, and other owners may be able to offer advice on who can carry out the work.
