This course, “ Electrical Anomalies,” is a look at EV/HEV/PHEV anomalies; electrical issues that deviate from what is normal and expected. The purpose of this program is to give professional technicians technical explanations on various electrical anomalies they may encounter on HEV, PHEV, and BEV vehicles.
You will see some of the unique challenges related to troubleshooting modern electric and hybrid vehicle voltage systems. This course examines electrical systems and some of the mysteries behind HV connections, leakage, and the HV system main contactor relays. This course also covers overlooked essential subjects such as motor current draw, A/C circuits, ohmmeter false positives in parasitic drains, measuring interlock relay outputs, and trouble codes associated with common problems.
