The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) is hosting a free webinar for service technicians on Thursday, Aug. 26 at 4:00 p.m. ET entitled “Body Control Electronics Diagnosis.”
Body controls on modern vehicles have evolved into complex systems relying on a variety of electrical components controlled by modules communicating on various networks. Phil Fournier of Standard Motor Products will show that while these are complex systems, the diagnostics do not have to be complicated if fundamental electrical principles are understood.
This course will first focus on understanding electrical theory as it applies to automotive systems including components such as motors, solenoids, actuators and their control circuits. Fournier will then use that theory to diagnose complex systems through real-world case studies. After completing this class, a technician will be able to diagnose body electrical systems and components by demonstrating how to:
- Analyze voltage drop testing results
- Evaluate DVOM measurements
- Analyze oscilloscope waveforms
- Confirm inputs and outputs with scan tool data
After registering, a confirmation email will be sent containing information about joining the webinar. Those who are not sure if they can attend are encouraged to register as they will receive a follow-up email with details on how to attend a recorded session, if available.
