Professional Training Series

Power Distribution & Power Mode Master Analysis

Modern vehicles do not use the same high current, easily diagnosed ignition switches & systems of yesteryear. Newer vehicles use button ignition switch nodes, intelligent power management, circuit board microprocessor controlled smart junction boxes & fuse centers. These power systems use complex communication & security protocols that change the way we diagnose these seemingly simple “start & run” circuit power management systems. What do you do if you push the button and nothing happens? Where do you go next? Is it a bad key transponder? Is it a bad switch? Learn time saving diagnostic tactics in this class that will make you the master of these complex power distribution circuits.  This class is recommended for A & B level Technicians.

  • Modern Power Management Systems
  • Smart Key & Transponder Systems Diagnosis
  • Push Button Power Up & Start Systems Overview
  • Scan Tool Data Analysis, Resets & Procedures
  • Charging System, Load Shedding & Programming
