The automotive diagnostic videos provided here show you what you can do with your Automotive Diagnostics Kit. They are an invaluable training resource and demonstrate how PicoScope and the Automotive Diagnostics Kit can be used to find a variety of vehicle faults.
In this video, Pico's own Ben Martins (one of our Automotive Applications Specialist in the UK), checks out the Premium 6-way breakout lead set (PQ070) using it to check the air fuel ratio.
Steve Smith of Pico Technology demonstrates the Guided Test for testing ultrasonic parking sensors.
Motor Age has made this great video, showing how easy it is to do a battery/charging system test with PicoScope.
Did you know that this is even easier to do with PicoDiagnostics' automated battery/charging system test?
In this video Paul 'Scanner' Danner guides you through the essentials of PicoScope and helps you to master basic functions and tests.
In this video Paul 'Scanner' Danner continues his introduction to the essentials of PicoScope and helps you to release the power of your system.
Frank discusses using PicoScope to observe voltage drop against load, measured as current by the consumer. Covering timebases, voltage ranges, theory and the physical connections required.
Frank looks at a Turbo Control actuator, measuring control duty and current. Covering the theory of the test, what is being tested and the simplicity of using a scope and current clamp for this test.
Frank looks at a converting a digital air mass value to an analogue value.
Frank looks at the wide band lambda sensor.
Frank looks at the evaluation of the ignition circuit, Ignition Profiling.
Frank looks at the relationship between current, voltage drop and ground reference.
Frank looks at the performance of the high-pressure pump under full load.
Frank looks at the function of the electronic control unit and hydraulic pump performance of pressure over time.
Frank looks at real-time dynamic compression testing with the WPS500X pressure transducer.
Frank looks at diesel particulate filter (DPF) sensor testing, using our PicoScope 4425.
A great video showing how to test a 4 wire Toyota COP. Shows secondary using COP probe, primary current and trigger signal.
A video from Autonerdz demonstrating the use of the WPS500X pressure transducer.
This video shows how to test a digital (variable frequency) type MAF sensor using a PicoScope.
An illustration of how changing recorded samples from a scope changes the waveform displayed.
In this video John Thornton walks you through some of the common functions of the PicoScope.
This video shows how PicoScope can be used to evaluate an air mass meter. First a good air mass meter on a Ford Mondeo 2.0 is tested, then an air leak is simulated to show the effect on the air mass meter and the performance of the engine.
This video shows a PicoScope Automotive Oscilloscope being used to test a solenoid type idle air control valve.
This video by Mick Jones and Autonerdz demonstrates the power of PicoScope, along with some of its advanced features.
This video shows how to use your PicoScope to check engine timing.
