Essential Braking Systems – ESP and ABS Diagnosis – 2 Days.

Anti lock braking and the associated systems have been with us for decades but like all vehicle technology much has changed over time. The focus of this course being the common systems that you’ll see in your workshops on a day to day basis. The course is designed to give you confidence in accurately diagnosing ABS and ESP related faults as well as important information when carrying out service related repairs.ESP

You’ll learn about ABS / ESP systems, their component parts and functionality from a range of manufacturers. You’ll discover the different types of modulators used along with the various analog, digital and intelligent sensors found within these systems. You’ll be using a range of test equipment including oscilloscopes, meters, multi make and manufacturer specific diagnostic tooling which will give you a broad range of skills which can be put to use in your workshop the very next day.
