Class 1 21-09: Keyless Starting Systems Operation and Diagnosis: Keyless starting systems are just about every make and model. These systems rely heavily on RF transmission of signals between Fob’s and antennas. The security module is now an integral part of the starting system. This class looks at system operation and diagnostic techniques to help the technician deal with these systems.
Class 2 21-10: Lab Scope Operating and Testing: Electrical testing of components is one of the most crucial skills that a technician can possess. Part of that skill set involves being able to use a lab scope effectively. This will be a live class using our engine simulator to explain how to use the scope and how to look at common signals and make decision on if the signal is good or bad.
Class 3 21-11: Dual Clutch Manumatic Transmissions: These transmissions present many challenges to technicians from testing to programming and calibration. This class covers operation of the solenoids and clutches used to control the shifting and gear engagement. This class is designed for all technicians regardless if you specialize in transmissions or not.
Class 4 21-12: Advanced Case Studies Part 6: New case studies, different problems, different diagnostic techniques. All are covered in this class using case studies derived from our diagnostic business. Learn how we worked our way through these unique problems. This class does not require that you have attended and of our previous classes.
Class 5 22-01: Ford Valve Timing Systems: Ford has had VVT systems since the early 2000’s. This class will look at Ford VVT systems. We will cover operation and testing of the various components and use case studies to highlight diagnostic techniques and problems you may encounter with Ford systems.
Class 6 22-02: Diagnosing Drivability and Trim Codes using Fuel Trim Data: Drivability concerns cover a lot of different areas of engine operation from fuel control to ignition and mechanical issues. This class uses scan data including fuel trim to help pinpoint the cause of the problem. We start with a standardized diagnostic approach to the problem and then use a series of case studies to help explain how to solve the issue.
Class 7 22-03: Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Vehicle Operations: The Pacifica is a popular hybrid vehicle. We will cover the various systems employed by Chrysler. This class will cover Operation and Diagnosis of the systems unique to the Hybrid drive. Scan data and service procedures will be included in this presentation.
Class 8 22-04: Navigating and Using the VCDS VAG-COM Scan Tool for VW Audi: The VCDS VAG-COM is a popular scan tool for Audi and VW vehicles. This session covers advantages of the tool and how to navigate and use the various menus. We will cover how to use the tool for common functions such as reading codes and data then move into other areas such as coding and bi-directional controls.
Class 9 22-05: 3 Phase Brushless Motors Operation and Diagnosis: We are seeing more applications of these powerful electric motors. From Hybrid Drive Motors to fuel pumps. This class covers control signals, drive module and motor operation. Class will also cover how to diagnose these motors as they operate very differently than a conventional brushed motor. We will be using both voltage and amperage to assess the motors.
Class 10 22-06: GM Stop Start Systems: This class will cover all aspects of GM Stop Start systems. There is much more to the system than just the starter. Additional systems employed by GM on stop Start vehicles such as the Power Supply Transformer and Cabin Heat management will be covered in this class. We will also look at operation and diagnosis of the various components as well as scan data and bi-directional control.
