Automotive Electrical Troubleshooting Basics
Checking the function and operational preconditions of an electrical component is applying electrical engineering knowledge at its finest. In addition to electrical engineering you should be able to “read” electrical circuit diagrams and perform measurements with the correct equipment. Being successful in the troubleshooting requires, amongst other things, proper use and understanding of the oscilloscope.
- Electrical Circuit Diagrams and Markings
- Oscilloscope Operating Principle and Connections
- Settings, Accuracy and Measuring Probes
- Electrical Operational Preconditions of a Component
- Checking the Operational Preconditions
- Short Circuit Troubleshooting
- Battery Discharge Current Troubleshooting
WHY THIS TRAINING MODULE?
The switch from theoretical knowledge of electrical engineering to practical know-how in the workshop requires a good understanding about the basic skills of troubleshooting. Utilising circuit diagrams, and being familiar with the properties and use of your own measuring equipment, such as the oscilloscope, is a basic requirement for the troubleshooting work for a mechanic.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
This study will help you understand the required equipment and its properties, and challenge you to start using it. You will deepen your knowledge in electrical engineering through measuring technology and you will reach a level where you can apply your knowledge about voltage drop and electrical operational preconditions.
