1. Open Card Works at the computer.
2. Select ”Fleet Accounts”
3. Select ”Manage Payments”
4. Select the fleet account that the person work for. Make sure you have the name of the employee that ask you to debit the account.

It happens that something goes wrong and we need to refund a customer. If person paid cash, we should know that they actually paid. If it’s not a regular customer ask for their ID and cell phone number, and write down info in refunding form so that we keep track of complainers that might try to abuse us. For credit card users it’s easier.

1.    Open Card Works at the computer.
2.    Select ”Credit Cards”
3.    Select ”Refund”
4.    Scroll down to you find the correct card (cards are listed alphabeticly and by the last 4 digits). Click the person/card that should be refunded.
5.    Below, refund the full amount or part of the amount by changing the amount.
6.    Click ”Process”. You will then see that the card charges has been changed to $0 or the amount you decided.

An important thing is that we can’t refund anybody after midnight, that’s when the batch is settled and is sent away. After this we don’t keep the credit card information. If somebody comes after this and said they had an issue, you would only need the last 4 digits of the credit card. That way you can look up the history and have it confirmed when they washed and what they were charged. In these cases, refund cash by taking some money from the money jars by the vending machine. We can’t transfer by credit card, since we don’t store credit card information.


1. Open Card Works at the computer.
2. Select ”Reports on the left side.
3. Under ”Report dates”, select ”All history”.
4. Then under ”Searchable” on the bottom, choose ”Activity Report”, and fill in the last four (4) digits of either the credit/debit card or pre-paid/fleet card.
5. There might be several cards with this last four digits, so scroll down to find the correct card you are looking for.

Self Serve Bays

Some dialer functions work - others not:

1. Which functions work?
2. If only hi-pressure functions work (High-Pressure Soap, High-Pressure Rinse, Wax and Sealant, Clear Coat, High Pressure Spot Free Rinse), go to the pumproom and open up the grey box that is connected to the self serve pump stand, on the pump stands left hand side.
3. With a screw driver, push in one of the black buttons on the contactor and see if the high pressure starts up. If not, the contactor might be bad. If working, the dialer in the bay might be bad. 

There's no light or power on the timer, timer screen and credit card machine:

1. Go to the pumproom and the self serve pumpstand.
2. On the left hand side of the self serve pumpstand, take out the fuse (black circled plastic) and see if it's burned out or not. If burned out, find a new fuse in one of the lower drawers to the left of the work desk. If lights are on, issued solved. If still no light, check braker in the braker cabinets. 
3. If still an issue, call AutoAuto Wash.
