Basic Auto Electrics, Electronics & Diagnostics Skills
VenueKenvision Techniks Talent CentreQ7-Q9 FELIZ BUILDING- KAHAWA SUKARINAIROBI, NAIROBI 00200 Kenya + Google Map
This course consists of THREE units namely:
Unit 1: Introduction to Basic Electronics
Unit 2: Scantool Diagnostics & CAN Bus
Unit 3: Engine Component Diagnostics
Each of the units costs 25K (USD 250) and takes 1 Week to complete. The full course takes 3 weeks and costs USD 600. It is advisable to take up all the units if one is novice (beginner). Those already with qualifications and skills may skip the basics upon being preliminary examined for their experience.
Working on cars with experience
Unit 1: Introduction to Basic ElectronicsAll technicians would benefit from attending this course, particularly people who would normally avoid working with electrics.
Some older technicians may have just attended mechanical training when young and not had formal electrical training.
How electricity is produced for vehiclesWiring types for various circuitsA/C & D/C differencesMeasurements, Volts, Amps & OhmsOhms LawElectrical units and multipliersCircuits, series and parallelSwitches and RheostatsMeasuring devicesPractical ExercisesGrounds, and Earth testingIntroduction to Sensors and ActuatorsFault finding techniques, including short and open circuit testing and measuring high resistances
Unit 2: Scantool Diagnostics & CAN BusKES 25K/ 250 USDPerson
All technicians would benefit from this course, basic trained mechanics will gain the knowledge and insight required to work on modern cars, understanding limitations of equipment types will build confidence to correctly diagnose complex problems on today’s cars.
Technicians who wish to be brought up to date on how to diagnose faults on modern vehicles.
People who need to know how the system works, to facilitate other areas of work they may need the knowledge.
Timeline on introduction of computerization and vehicle networksElectric fundamentalsUnderstanding Fault Codes and how they are generatedWhy you do not always get Fault Codes but have problems on the vehicleSensors and Actuators, what role they play.How data is passed around a vehicle.Understand the difference between Live Data and GraphingCAN BUS explainedWhy we need and use CAN BUS systems
Unit 3: Engine Component DiagnosticsFee: USD 600 (full course fee) /or USD 250 per unit
This course is orientated to use oscilloscope with other test equipment. In particular the oscilloscope helps give a good understanding of sensors, actuators and how they operate.
Fundamentals of electronic ignition, electronic control systems, electronic fuel injection and idle speed control; with oscilloscope use as a diagnostic aid. With waveform interpretation and understanding made easy.
Modern car partsTARGET GROUP
All technicians would benefit from attending this course but it is specifically aimed at technicians who understand the basic principles of electricity and want to improve their diagnostic skills.Anyone who has finally realized that owning a Scan-tool is only halfway there. For people who want to fix the car rather than just find out what is wrong with it.Fundamentals on electronic controls used, focusing on electronic architecture and interaction between sensors and actuators.Background to purpose of Euro 3, Euro 4, Euro 5 and what to expect with Euro 6. Block exemption rulings and roll-out of standardized parts.Detailed coverage of Electronic Fuel Injection both Petrol and Diesel.SENSORS
Air metering devices including vacuum sensors (MAP), hot wire (air mass meter),Karmen Vortex type air flow and vane type air flow meters.Temperature sensorsOxygen sensors (Lambda/O2)Knock sensorsThrottle position sensors (Potentiometers)Engine speed sensors (Crankshaft)Crank/Cam position sensor (Cam sensor)ELECTRONIC CONTROL UNITS (ECU)Basic operation and operational decision making priorities.ACTUATORSFuel injectorsIdle Speed Control Valves (Rotary and Electromagnetic)Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valves (EGR)
PRACTICAL – Implementation of the theory using either delegates own vehicles and test equipment, if required equipment shall be provided for this practical work. Readings can be compared with Scan-tool data
