AUTO 0451 is a course in automotive chassis electronics. The content reflects operation of digital circuits, semi-conductor devices and methods for troubleshooting complex problems. Students will engage in a variety of activities using diagnostic equipment, the five step diagnostic method, and research to discover vehicle failures. Students will also be expected to obtain research materials from Honda’s interactive active Technical Library to support their diagnosis. The course intention is to build upon the student’s prior knowledge of electronics using basic parallel/ series circuit design fundamentals as the foundation. Students will learn how to make circuit performance predictions from schematics; along with test data they will be able to navigate a circuit’s operation via diagnostic flow charts. Successful course completion shall include the following: finish designated Honda Interactive Network Training (HINT) modules with proof of module posting on the students Dealer Personal Tracking System (DPTS), correctly diagnose vehicle failures, completion of homework assignments and perform satisfactorily on practical exams.
