This course builds on knowledge obtained in Automotive Electricity.  It explains the digital multimeter’s functions, operation, and how to perform tests including resistance, voltage, current, and diode checks.  It also provides practical instruction on how to find short circuits and open circuits, parasitic drain, and how to use voltage drop to diagnose excessive resistance.  The course accurately simulates meter functions and allows technicians to practice.   Read More

Clinic Length: Approx. 3 hours Universal Technical Institute 721 Lockhaven Dr. Houston, TX 77073   In this clinic, we will present how to set up and operate a lab scope for the purpose of testing automotive sensors and components of various types. As the saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” We cover set up procedures, voltage and time basesettings, and waveform capturing techniques. Waveforms captured from many different component types are reviewed to differentiate ‘good’ and ‘bad’ waveforms. A color clinic book is provided showcasing popular aftermarket lab scope waveforms for take home reference. After completing this clinic, the student will have the knowledge to: Set up and capture automotive waveforms using a lab scope Configure lab scope settings for optimized viewing of waveforms Properly connect a lab scope to various solenoids, actuators, speed and position sensors and DC motors found under hood and undercar Identify when going for the lab scope is necessary Utilize multiple channels of the lab scope to aid in diagnostic situation Read More

This course introduces basic air conditioning and heating concepts and theory. It provides a brief explanation of the principles of heat and heat transfer, temperature and pressure relationships, state change, refrigerant properties, and component functions and operation. It applies these principles to an overall explanation of how the refrigeration system and air management and distribution systems work. Specific topics include CCOT, VDOT, and TXV systems. Read More
