ATE 122 - Electronic Systems

Credits: 3
4 Skills Lab Hours

Prerequisites: ATE 121  

This course includes the theory, operation and application of electronic sensing devices. The computer process of sensing a condition, deciding on an output and controlling the output will be covered in detail. Students will study computer networking as it applies to the vehicle. Students will use specific test equipment to interface with the vehicle’s computer system to analyze and diagnose vehicle faults. Certain course sections will be manufacturer specific.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:

  1. Use scan tools to solve computer electrical related problems.
  2. Interpret and evaluate readings obtained from electronic diagnostic equipment.
  3. Identify computer inputs and associate these to correct corresponding outputs.
  4. Interpret and document the diagnostic process used to solve an automotive-related computer network fault.
  5. Describe and give an example of each step in the electrical diagnostic process.
  6. Analze and evaluate scan tool data.
