In the automotive business, knowledge is the key to effectively diagnosing and repairing today's vehicles. With the evolution of technology, auto repair has required that mechanics become technicians with an array of skills, including electrical, electronic system theory, mechanical, and engineering theory. They must be able to comprehend complex vehicle control systems, and apply a sound diagnostic approach for an effective repair. Newer vehicles utilize extremely complex technology, including multiple onboard computer systems that control every aspect of your vehicle’s operation. Along with this technology comes the necessity for state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment. Laptop-based scan tools are now the norm and require additional skills for technicians to properly use and interpret scan data.
