Automotive Video Inc. (Team AVI) has released what it's calling the industry's first comprehensive training program using Mode $06 diagnostics.
The firm said Mode $06 is ``one of the most valuable, yet least-understood and -utilized applications available'' on most automotive diagnostic scanners. Its new DVD class is entitled ``Mode $06 Diagnostics-Diagnosing and Repairing OBD-II.'' When properly understood and utilized, Mode $06 yields an abundance of profitable, time-saving tips, according to Fort Myers-based Team AVI.
The program, which shows technicians how to diagnose and repair OBD-II (on-board diagnostics, second version) vehicles using Mode $06 diagnostics, covers a number of topics, including the three-step process for Mode $06; using Mode $06 to find failed monitors and component parameters; using pass/fail criteria to verify repairs; tips, techniques, and hands-on demonstrations; and profitable time-saving tips.
Course materials include more than 90 minutes of viewing time on DVD as well as a comprehensive companion manual. A manual for import vehicles also is available. Course instructor is John Forro, an ASE-certified master technician, speaker and author.
