  • Electronics Fundamentals: Base Sensor Testing

    May 2019

    Modern vehicles use many electronic controls. Diagnosing faults can be more difficult for technicians who have not had the benefit of training in electronics. This can lead to the replacement of unneeded parts, angry customers, and frustrated technicians. The goal of this training series is to prepare technicians to diagnose and repair vehicle electronic systems successfully. Each training segment will reinforce the concepts taught with exercises and a case study.

  • Diagnose Vehicle Networks Part 2

    June 2019

    Late model vehicles have many computers onboard that are networked together using different protocols and configurations. A single sensor fault might set codes in multiple modules since the data is being shared over the network. Communication faults will often generate the dreaded U codes and at times a scan tool will not communicate with the vehicle at all.

  • Going Beyond the Code

    August 2019

    Engine performance problems typically set DTCs and technicians can fall into the trap of replacing parts based only on the code stored. Often, replacing parts based on DTCs alone doe not solve the problem. Sometimes a a vehicle can have symptoms but does not set a code.

  • Automotive HVAC Passenger Compartment Controls

    True April 2019

    Today’s cars use many sensors and actuators to control air flow and temperature in the passenger compartment. Often, a lock of cooling or heat can be traced back to these components. Technicians need to understand their operation so they can accurately diagnose the problem before they tear into the dashboard.

  • Displacement on Demand

    True February 2019

    Displacement On Demand (DOD) systems allow the PCM to shut down cylinders during low power demand to save fuel. These systems can increase the complexity of code or symptom diagnosis. A technician must understand their operation to determine if a symptom is being caused by the DOD system or other components.
