Auto Engine Diagnostics & Management Skills Training

July 15 @ 09:00 - August 2 @ 16:30 EAT



Auto Engine Diagnostics & Management


One has got to go the extra mile to become a potent automotive electrician. It is even more demanding when we consider the ever-computer-dependent that more and more cars are churned onto our roads every day by factories that have invested heavily in computerized production. The electrical technician of today has no place in fixing most of the cars that are on the roads today.


This course consists of THREE units namely:

  • Unit 1: ScanTool Diagnostics & CAN (Controller Area Network) Bus
  • Unit 2: Engine Component Diagnostics

Each of the units costs 45K (USD 300) and takes 1 Week to complete. The full course takes 2 weeks and costs USD 600. It is advisable to take up all the units if one is a 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: Scantool Diagnostics & CAN Bus

KES 45K/ 300USD Per Unit

All technicians would benefit from this course, basic trained mechanics will gain the knowledge and insight required to work on modern cars, and understanding the 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 may need the knowledge.

  • Timeline on the introduction of computerization and vehicle networks
  • Electric fundamentals
  • Understanding Fault Codes and how they are generated
  • Why you do not always get Fault Codes but have problems with the vehicle
  • Sensors and Actuators, what role they play.
  • How data is passed around a vehicle.
  • Understand the difference between Live Data and Graphing
  • CAN BUS explained
  • Why we need and use CAN BUS systems

Are there master and slave modules on the CAN Bus?

The nature of CAN bus communications allows all modules to transmit and receive data on the bus. Any module can transmit data, which all the rest of the modules receive permitting both peer-to-peer and broadcast data transmissions.

In CANopen, the CAN bus normally includes one module acting as a network master which starts the bus communications, but a dedicated master module is not needed. In J1939, the master and slave concept is not used.

Unit 2: Engine Component Diagnostics

KES 45K/ 300USD Per Unit


This course is orientated to the use of oscilloscopes 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 are made easy.


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Fundamentals on electronic controls used, focusing on electronic architecture and interaction between sensors and actuators.
  4. Background to the purpose of Euro 3, Euro 4, and Euro 5 and what to expect with Euro 6.0 Block exemption rulings and roll-out of standardized parts.
  5. Detailed coverage of Electronic Fuel Injection both Petrol and Diesel.

  1. Air metering devices including vacuum sensors (MAP), hot wire (air mass meter),
  2. Karmen Vortex-type airflow and vane-type air flow meters.
  3. Temperature sensors
  4. Oxygen sensors (Lambda/O2)
  5. Knock sensors16
  6. Throttle position sensors (Potentiometers)
  7. Engine speed sensors (Crankshaft)
  8. Crank/Cam position sensor (Cam sensor)


  1. Basic operation and operational decision-making priorities.
  3. Fuel injectors
  4. Idle Speed Control Valves (Rotary and Electromagnetic)
  5. Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valves (EGR)



PRACTICAL – Implementation of the theory using either delegates’ own vehicles or test equipment, if required equipment shall be provided for this practical work. Readings can be compared with Scan-tool data
