Course Description of the
1-Day Troubleshooting Workshop
using The Starter Kit H-111A

Learn to troubleshoot vehicle electrical circuits in one day with Vince Fischelli's unique style of live hands-on electrical troubleshooting training.  Become the "go-to-tech" that can repair electrical problems with decisive DMM troubleshooting instead of just changing a lot of parts. Others have learned this, why not you?

In this hands-on workshop Techs use a DMM to test and troubleshoot vehicle electrical circuits with specially designed live circuit board troubleshooting trainers that simulate vehicle circuits. During the workshop, Techs practice with hands-on troubleshooting as shown at the left. NO TIME IS WASTED BUILDING CIRCUITS! These electrical circuit board troubleshooting trainers are fully constructed and ready for immediate hands-on troubleshooting training.

Techs work and learn independently with expert instructions in the student workbook, H-WB111A providing step-by-step guidance. Techs learn to analyze the six most common ways vehicle circuits fail and how to tell if one or more problems exist in a vehicle circuit after making only two circuit voltage measurements.

Then Techs practice over and over the best ways to measure voltage and resistance with these circuit board troubleshooting trainers. Techs learn how to interpret DMM readings with lots of hands-on practice to determine if a circuit has an electrical problem or not and what steps to follow to find any problem in a circuit. NO MORE GUESSING! AFTER THIS WORKSHOP A TECH WILL KNOW! Techs learn to distinguish between good and bad voltage and resistance readings in live circuits and how DMM readings change when common circuit problems are present, especially intermittent problems.

In this hands-on workshop Techs learn to troubleshoot and find open circuits, voltage drops and short-to-ground problems at any point in a vehicle circuit. Each Tech follows instructions to measure and test circuits like a professional auto/truck electrical system troubleshooter. In this intensive hands-on troubleshooting workshop, Techs develop hands-on skill by troubleshooting 32 individual electrical problems - one at a time - to perfect their troubleshooting technique. Practicing hands-on troubleshooting through 32 electrical problems helps Techs learn the inside secrets of finding circuit failures and boost their troubleshooting confidence. The next day on the job you can use what you learned in this workshop to quickly troubleshoot a vehicle circuit to find an open circuit, a voltage drop or a short-to-ground at any point in a circuit because you will know how.

Techs keep a 68 page workshop manual with notes, schematics, troubleshooting tips and DMM readings from the hands-on troubleshooting exercises to use for reference back on the job.

These circuit boards help you to learn about circuit testing and troubleshooting principles. Work independently with the circuit boards because you don't learn troubleshooting by watching someone else do it. YOU LEARN TO TROUBLESHOOT BY DOING IT YOURSELF.

With plenty of hands-on practice you learn by doing it until you get it right. You will learn how to read schematic diagrams. You will learn the right and wrong way to test and measure circuits with your own DMM. You will learn how to interpret DMM readings in circuits and tell good DMM readings from bad DMM readings. You will learn how circuits fail and what it takes to identify a circuit problem if a problem exists. If there is no problem in a circuit you will know that for sure as well.

The Tech at the left performing systematic, step-by-step troubleshooting tests, to determine what electrical conditions exist in the circuit. Techs learn and practice with hands-on application the correct ways to test and measure circuits. Techs learn how to recognize if a circuit is operating correctly, using only their DMM, and what is wrong if the circuit is not operating correctly. This is what "TROUBLESHOOTING" is all about. It takes hands-on practice to learn to troubleshoot electrical circuits. Then you practice with 32 electrical problems one at a time. You can troubleshoot circuits because we teach you what you need to know to become a professional level vehicle electrical circuit troubleshooter.

Techs independently troubleshoot each of the 32 electrical problems to practice their troubleshooting technique. The instructor inserts electrical problems on the bottom of the circuit boards (hidden from the Tech's view), such as an OPEN circuit, a VOLTAGE DROP or a SHORT-TO-GROUND, to duplicate how a circuit could fail if it were on an actual vehicle. Techs practice the troubleshooting steps covered earlier in the workshop to find 32 different voltage side and ground side problems as well as circuit load (actuator) problems. Techs write down all troubleshooting step sequences including the DMM readings in their workshop manual so they can review their work later with the instructor explaining each problem. In this way a tech is able to see how well he has done with his troubleshooting and make corrections in his technique before troubleshooting the remaining problems.
