The New Multi-Frequency TPMS Sensor combines 314.9, 315 and 433/434 MHz applications into one single SKU.
The Sensor Simulator will allow the technician to know if the issue is a faulty sensor or a wiring defect. It is especially useful for wiring tests.
Serial data buses may seem like a daunting concept, but understanding them is now a required skill for techs.
This primer will help techs understand the variety of sensors that help control a vehicle’s interior temperature.
Oxygen sensors are one of the most critical components of a modern engine because of their role in controlling the fuel-injection system and emissions coming from the tailpipe. Here’s a primer to help understand these sensors and their functions.
In many cases, “always done it this way” consists of diagnosing a fuel pump by squirting some type of liquid or gaseous hydrocarbon into the air intake. Case in point, a 2011 Nissan Rogue had suddenly stalled on a busy summertime highway.
A simple test drive can reveal a lot of problems that might have been otherwise overlooked. Sure, test drives take time, but so do comebacks. Think of it as a final quality-control check.
Some vehicles also use passive infrared sensors mounted in the dash or an overhead console to monitor the body temperature of the vehicle’s occupants. This allows the system to fine-tune heating and cooling so everybody stays comfortable.
Modern ABS applies individual brake pressure to all four wheels through hub-mounted sensors and a dedicated computer controller. So what can service department managers do to help customers get their ABS running in tip-top shape again?
It’s more important than ever to understand how the crankshaft and camshaft sensors function in both the ignition control and fuel injection systems.
So much of the diagnostic process for fuel pumps can be performed from the driver’s seat of the vehicle with a scan tool. This makes you a more productive technician and the diagnosis more accurate.
