This one-night class will cover the hows and whys of vehicle computer reprogramming, also
known as computer flashing. The need to program modules on vehicles is growing every
day. Learn what modules can be programmed, and how the many different manufacturers
are applying this technology to their vehicles. The Big 3 domestic manufacturers’
procedures for flashing will be shown. Both factory supported and J2534 or “generic”
programming tools will be covered. Case studies on how this procedure should be applied
in the field will also be discussed. This class will help both shop owners and technicians
better understand this growing service area.

This one-night seminar will address the growing problem of OBD emissions test rejects
due to monitor status being “not ready.” The new changes in the testing program will make
first retest rejects count against a shop’s Grade; therefore, making sure monitors run to
completion is critical. Case studies of vehicles with difficult-to-set monitors will be studied.
Strategies discussed will include addressing vehicles that won’t run monitors, as well as using
scan tools and Mode 6 data to help determine a solution to this often challenging problem.

This one-night seminar will focus on component testing as it applies to OBD code
generation. Strategies for testing using a variety of tools, from test lights and DVOMs
to scopes and scan tools, will be covered. Attention will be paid on how to properly test
vehicle components that include computer inputs as well as output devices such as CKP,
CMP, MAF, MAP, O2S, and TPS sensors. Testing output devices such as injectors, ignition
coils and solenoids will also be discussed. Most OBD emissions failures are due to failed
components and learning ways to quickly test components is critical.
This seminar should give even the experienced tech some new ideas.

This one-night seminar is devoted to helping technicians develop a plan for successfully
repairing OBD emission failures. OBDII testing will be reviewed and actual failure case
studies will be discussed to help understand the strategies used to repair OBDII failures.
Using computerized information systems and enhanced functions in aftermarket and factory
scan tools will be illustrated to make diagnosing OBD code problems easier.
