Network Diagnostic Strategies for Domestic Vehicles

Live online class presented by John Thornton

This class includes CAN and LIN Bus Network diagnostics with a focus on getting answers using simple tools such as DVOM, test light, breakout box, scan tools & wiring diagrams.

The first goal of this class is to give you a good understanding of “Known Good” and once that is established, we will start to create faults to demonstrate what happens when particular problems arise. John will then move on to actual case studies of how he diagnoses different problems.

Dates: Tuesday January 25 & Thursday January 27, 2022

Time: 7 PM – 9 PM CST both nights

Cost: $100 (see package details below for a bigger discount!)

The real benefit of this class is identifying the type of problem you are facing, and then applying simple testing to lead you to the fix. Although domestic examples are used the same testing procedures apply to Asian and European vehicles.
