Pinpoint Sensor Dropouts with ease! Matt shows us one of the great functions the picoscope software allows you to use to aid in diagnosis. 

Identifying exhaust leak location

Here is a tip to help you identify the location of small/difficult to find exhaust leaks that may set false diagnostic trouble codes.

Chevy Aveo Case Study

image5

 In this Video, Brin shares a case study he has created on a 2011 Chevy Aveo. This diagnosis explains the patience and persistence needed to diagnose vehicles at a high level. One must have a "I will NOT be defeated" attitude when adversity shows its ugly face, especially in the automotive industry! Thanks for watching 

Fiat/Chrysler Powernet Network

image6

 In this video, Matt Shanahan explains for us the structure of Chryslers/Fiats new PowerNet network. He demonstrates the connections needed to properly diagnose the communication networks that these vehicles are equipped with. A simulated failure was created to help illustrate a compromised network. 

Relative Compresion Testing

 Justin Miller demonstrating how to perform a Relative Compression test without an amp clamp. The purpose of this video is to illustrate the value of the test itself while demonstrating how you can perform this test if you do not own a High-amp clamp.

Pico Reference waveforms explained

image8

 In this video, Brian explains how to create, upload, and manipulate reference waveforms in the picoscope software to aid the technician in diagnostics. 

GM Class 2 Network Diagnosis Tips

image9

 Automotive network communication diagnosis can be overwhelming for some technicians. With videos like this, we hope to help tie up some loose ends you may have to help increase your efficiency and accuracy as a diagnostic technician.   In this video, Keith demonstrates how to properly identify which module has caused complete network failure on this 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer.   By utilizing a convenient splice comb built into the vehicle, and single channel U-scope purchased from Aeswave.com , Keith was able to quickly identify which direction to travel next by isolating the module causing the network to be compromised.  

Using Picoscope software to capture intermittent issues

image10

 Trouble shooting Intermittent issues can always be tricky and time consuming at the same time. In this video, Brian demonstrates how to make the picoscope software work for you! The Mask and Alarm functions are explained in this video to allow the user to setup their tool to help capture a problem and alert the user when the problem occurs 

Testing Reference Voltage and how it is affected when Shorted

image11

 In this video Carlos demonstrates how to properly identify the cause of a compromised voltage reference circuit. Many unnecessary parts were replaced on this vehicle by the vehicle owner without successfully repairing the failure. Thank you for watching and subscribe if you havent already done so thanks. 

Ford F 350SD 6.0L 2004 Fuel Injector Case Study

image12

 In this Video, Brin Kline shares with us his diagnostic approach in resolving a poorly running 2004 Ford F-350 6.0L Diesel. Brin walks us through, start to finish, on how to properly identify the cause and correction of this drive-ability complaint. The root cause, even though being a common failure on this engine, can be tricky to diagnose at times. As Always, we thank you for watching our videos and would ask you to subscribe to our channel! Thank you! 

Being thorough while checking your Basics! PART 1

image13

 In this video, Brian Culotta shares methods of testing that may steer you in the wrong direction and illustrates how to keep your head straight when dealing with a potential high resistance/voltage drop scenario.  Many times, tests that we may find basic, if tested incorrectly, can steer you in the wrong direction! Brian shows us how to steer clear of that rabbit hole. In this example, voltage drop testing is the only accurate method for proving circuit integrity on a failed fuel pump circuit. Thanks for watching! 

Being thorough while checking your Basics! PART 2

image14

 In this video, Brian Culotta follows up from to his first video sharing a few test techniques to verifying a voltage drop/high resistance failure on a fuel pump circuit. Brian includes Voltage drop testing with a scope and how that voltage drop affects voltage at different locations in the circuit. A current probe was also used to show how voltage drop dramatically affects the current drawn by the fuel pump. Thanks for watching!
