ARCHIVED LIVESTREAM – Presented by Dan Cox, Technical Support Manager for Midtronics, Inc. Along with some basic electrical system diagnostics, many of the changes the automotive industry is seeing from multiple manufacturers will also be covered. The issue is power management and it all starts at the battery, this includes the “operating logic” manufacturers are adopting. Specific information will include changing alternator designs, off-board voltage regulation, custom charging algorithms and enhanced diagnostics for both modern batteries and charging systems. We also touch a bit on some new battery chemistry as well that may make their way into the automotive service world sooner than you think.
