Because it takes time and the tech guys needs paying and the dealers overheads and diagnostic equipment cost money so its reasonable that a charge is made for this.

it does need a trained technician to operate the diagnostic stuff. it doesn't do it on it's own! and the local backstreet mechanics' universal 'one fits all' machines usually spit out codes that leave them clueless. i've often known backstreet garages mis-diagnose. costing the customer money for a part that didn't cure the problem!
