HOTT Training

 

ASA Illinois is excited to host several more Hands-On Tech Training (HOTT) events in 2019. The first two dates for this all-day hands-on training were in January and February as we wrapped up our 4-part Hands-On PicoScope Training Series with Ken Zanders, sponsored by AESwave.

ASA Illinois will host several Hands-On Tech Training (HOTT) events in 2019. Two more dates are set for this Spring. More will be added for Fall of 2019. Watch for more information coming soon!

Course Descriptions:

Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS)  -  April 27

Instructor:  Louie Nelson, Carquest Technical Institute

You have seen them publicized on television: Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) that are developed to automate/adapt/enhance vehicle systems for safety and improved vehicle control. Some features are designed to avoid collisions and accidents by offering technologies that alert the driver to potential problems. Others are designed to avoid collisions by implementing safeguards and taking over control of the vehicle. Adaptive features may automate lighting, provide adaptive cruise control, automate braking, incorporate GPS/ traffic warnings, connect to smartphones, alert driver to other cars or dangers, keep the driver in the correct lane or show what is in blind spots. These systems are entering the aftermarket repair world. This course will bring you up to date on operation and diagnostic techniques that will enable you to keep these jobs profitable in your shop. Through examples in the classroom and live car demos, you will discover how as many as 20 different systems are linked together so you can better diagnose automotive complaints. You will also learn an effective work around technique to service the ADAS systems without costly equipment.

Automotive HVAC Systems: Automatic Temperature Control Diagnostics  -  April 27

Instructor: Kevin Roberts, Carquest Technical Institute

Advances in automatic temperature control technology require that diagnostic techniques advance with it. This hands-on class will build upon an understanding of automatic temperature control (ATC) operation and apply skills that include service information application, scan tool use, meter and oscilloscope techniques and network diagnostics. Many of the techniques taught in this class can also be applied to electronic manual climate control systems. Objectives of the course include:

  • ·                Diagnostic strategy
  • ·                Focus behind the firewall
  • ·                Identify and utilize specific scan tool PIDs
  • ·                Perform initialization as required by the system
  • ·                Perform pinpoint tests with a meter or oscilloscope
  • ·                Analyze networking issues
  • ·                Verify post-repair operation

Gasoline Direct Injection: Practical Diagnostic Techniques  -  May 18

Instructor:  Kevin Roberts, Carquest Technical Institute

This hands-on course focuses on practical testing techniques applied to gasoline direct injected (GDI) engines supported by a working understanding of system and component operation. This class introduces essential testing techniques which can be applied to a variety of GDI equipped vehi­cles regardless of make or model. This class focuses on the proper use of common diagnostic tools, scan data analysis and proper test drive techniques to help accurately diagnose some of the more common issues found on GDI engines.

Coming this FALL:

Advanced Driver Assist Systems: ADAS Fault Analysis  -  October 19

Instructor:  Louie Nelson, Carquest Technical Institute

ADAS faults can come in a variety of forms. Component failure, networking problems, and calibration failures are at the top of the list. This class will explore ADAS failures and the analytic process used to solve these problems efficiently. As this technology rolls out of warranty, you can expect them to be in your service bays with your customers looking for solutions. Through examples in the classroom and live car demos you will learn how these systems can be effectively repaired using an understanding of the technology, strong foundational skill sets, and current service information.
