You need to get the fault codes read, that will tell what the problem is.

Does any message come up on the screen?

There will be fault codes stored in the memory then, these need to be read using suitable diagnostic equipment to give the mechanic / person fixing the car a heads up where to start looking for the problem.

Reading the fault codes WONT necessarily tell you what the problem is it will however tell you what systems are unhappy giving you a starting point.

People get confused about what a computer can do plugging it in gives you fault codes relating to the fault but many just read the code and replace whatever part the code refers to this rarely works.

For example low boost some would replace turbo when infact the reason for the low boost could be lack of vacuum to control the turbo or a burst boost hose/intercooler.

Find someone who fixes cars rather than someone who just fits new parts till its fixed

Many main dealers are very good at this, so long as it's your money they are wasting.
