Errol Ince, Deputy Head of school of Technology
Bromley College talks about car fault finding in his motor vehicle studies class:

"I use the AutoLAB software to demonstrate to my students how to carry out certain diagnostic techniques on motor vehicles. What I particularly like about this software programme is that it's got really good sound. It is the sound that really enthuses the students.

If we want to, I can always say to the students 'there you go jump into the car and let's go for a drive, click on the steering wheel and away we go'

Having gone for a road test, one of the critical things we need to be able to do, is to compare data. The way we do that is by looking at various different wiring diagrams. This is a very detailed wiring diagram, the good thing about this is that it is very representative of the industry today. All wiring diagrams pretty much look like this, this isn't a simplified version it's a real life wiring diagram for a system.

The students can interrogate the wiring diagram to give them some understanding of how to test various different components, whether it be crank shaft sensor or a engine cooling temperature sensor.

One of the other things it can do is give you different fault codes, which is also a very powerful tool. The data is representative of what you would have on an On Board Diagnostic Code Reader so in essence it is just like being in a workshop where the students can actually do various different tests on a vehicle just to give them a better understanding of how to diagnose and test vehicle systems."
