Training Tip: Maximize Use of Your Scan Tools

Training Tip: Maximize Use of Your Scan Tools

Delphi combines the importance of education and scan tools by providing training courses such as its Gasoline Powertrain Training Seminar Series, which specifically incorporates diagnostic scan tools for troubleshooting and diagnosis. The following courses are examples of Delphi's scan-tool-related offerings.

With the amount of electronics on vehicles today, it’s no wonder keeping up to speed on the latest vehicle service information can be overwhelming. Maximizing the use of diagnostic scan tools during service and repair can help make the time spent underhood quicker and more accurate with fewer comebacks.

Delphi combines the importance of education and scan tools by providing training courses such as its Gasoline Powertrain Training Seminar Series, which specifically incorporates diagnostic scan tools for troubleshooting and diagnosis. The following courses are examples of Delphi’s scan-tool-related offerings.

Mode $06 Data and Drive Cycle Diagnostics (four-hour course): Mode $06 data is some of the most misunderstood and underused scan tool data available on today’s vehicles. This course helps technicians understand and interpret Mode $06 data in order to use it to its full advantage. Mode $06 diagnostic skills provide the technician the opportunity to identify marginally performing components and advise the vehicle owner of future potential problems. Combined with drive cycle diagnostics, Mode $06 diagnostic skills can be looked at as a kind of “insurance policy” against unnecessary comebacks.

Controller Area Networks (CAN) and Multiplexing (four-hour course): For more than two decades, Delphi has been a pioneer in electronic controls and communications, tying electronic modules together on multiplexed (serial) busses. The Delphi CAN/multiplexing course covers how to troubleshoot stubborn communications problems with electronic control modules. Practical tips on the uses of meters, scopes, and factory and aftermarket scan tools are combined with theory, and real-world case studies to demonstrate how to diagnose everything from U-codes to power mode masters to serial bus gateways.
