Essential Energy Management and Stop – Start Diagnosis – 2 Days.

What was once a starting and charging system has morphed into energy management and stop start systems. This change in technology requires technicians to gain additional knowledge and skills to ensure accurate and efficient diagnosis and that’s where we come in. On this course you’ll learn why stop / start and energy management systems have been adopted, the actuators, sensors and control units that make up these systems, along with operational strategy giving you the much needed system awareness to aid diagnosis.Start Stop Button

You’ll discover the importance of using the correct battery, how battery health is monitored and the correct procedures for accurate diagnosis and replacement. You’ll learn about power management systems and how “smart charge” alternators differ, along with control strategies such as wake up and sleep protocols and electrical load reduction. Next up is the Start – Stop system and you’ll see how this is closely linked to power management and learn about its function, operation and key information for system evaluation.

As with all our training you’ll have the option to use generic and manufacturer diagnostic systems, along with meters and scopes learning test techniques you can put into practice the very next day.
