WHY THIS TRAINING MODULE?

Understanding and checking the operation of the vehicle charging system is part of the basic skills of all mechanics. System checks must always be made before replacing the starter battery. For automotive technicians the inspection of the charging system and starter battery is the first practical situation to apply electrical and measurement technology skills.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

At the beginning of the study, you can immediately get acquainted with the operation of the charging system. You can challenge your expertise in electrical and measuring technology. In troubleshooting, you may find that the charging control circuit is not working properly. In this case, knowing and perceiving the control circuit and it and operating conditions is a valuable skill. Studying will present you the main types of these control structures and will give you the basics for continuing the inspection.

As the troubleshooting progresses and when the fault is discovered, it becomes normal to have the need for more understanding of the basic components of the alternator construction and how it operates. Next study part covers more detailed information of structures and operation. You can explore more information via many illustrative images and animations.

Charging system operation involves a starter battery. Even if a malfunction and customer complains indicates a battery failure, you need always confirm the alternator operation and vehicle sleep mode discharge current before replacing the battery.

How to check battery condition, there are several methods for that. Study of battery inspection will present you the most typical methods without a battery tester and the with a tester. This will also help you learn the correct steps of the work procedure. You will also learn differences between various battery testing devices, feature and results. You quickly notice that checking the battery and the vehicle’s basic electrical system correctly is a truly professional job.
