With this training model you learn how to perform your work correctly and safely.
Automotive Electrical Troubleshooting Basics
Checking the function and operational preconditions of an electrical component is applying electrical engineering knowledge at its finest. In addition to electrical engineering you should be able to “read” electrical circuit diagrams and perform measurements with the correct equipment. Being successful in the troubleshooting requires, amongst other things, proper use and understanding of the oscilloscope.
Tyres, Rims, and Tyre Work
When working on the vehicle’s tyres and carrying out seasonal changing of tyres, you need to know the technical characteristics of tyres and wheel rims.

Charging System and Starter Batteries
The vehicle’s electrical systems are all interconnected via electric power management, i.e. through the battery and charging system. Checking the battery and the charging system’s condition is always the starting point for all troubleshooting in other electrical systems.
Electronics and electrical components are a central part of electric circuits. Resistors, diodes, leds, thyristors, transistors and microcircuits can be found almost everywhere in a vehicle. A mechanic has to understand the function of the components and circuits, to be able to perform troubleshooting.
Starting and Start-Stop System
Understanding the Starter System’s function and control circuit is essential for a mechanic when troubleshooting a vehicle that won’t start. Newer vehicles also has a Start-Stop function, which reduces emissions and noise.
