ATG Schedule of Classes for: SEPTEMBER 2018
Posted to Industry Events Forum on 8/2/2018

Greetings Everyone!

The Automotive Training Group (ATG) has the following classes available for the month of September 2018. All classes run from 6:30 p.m. - 10:00 p.m. each night for both evenings, except where indicated below.



Whether you're experiencing a no-communication fault, U-Codes, or systems that are not operating properly, you need a flexible diagnostic plan that can adapt to the nature of the fault and the available tools. Therefore, that's how we built this all-new Vehicle Network Diagnostic Strategies training manual and seminar.

Like all ATG products, this one tackles the 'High Level Indicators' first to quickly eliminate the most possible causes. This allows you to define the type of fault, determine the network configuration and expected test values to create the best diagnostic plan for the likely causes that remain. Only then do we cover specific network topology, known-good values, and specific Scan Tool and circuit test options, so you get the details precisely when you need them.

This seminar and manual were researched in the shop from actual network opens, shorts, Scan Tool faults and module faults, as well as a number of unexpected system and component interactions.

This all-new General Motors training seminar is the latest installment in our Domestic Engine Performance series, with topics arranged to maximize diagnostic efficiency by starting every discussion with 'High Level Indicators'.

You can follow a 4-hour flowchart and fix 80% of the codes and drivability complaints, or you can practice the high level approach to narrow down possible cause lists and sort through what's left in a fraction of the time. Every year General Motors engine management systems become more complex while available system information and diagnostic instructions become more generalized.

This seminar and manual were researched in the shop, and not from published repair information. Using this method, we've developed repeatable GM diagnostics based on actual failure patterns and proven best practices.

*Sep 10th & 11th - Chicopee, MA with Kris Lewis

*Sep 12th & 13th - Rocky Hill, CT with Kris Lewis

*Sep 19th & 20th - Grand Rapids, MI with Kris Lewis



Bosch fuel systems and Cummins engines come together to create some confusing (and often invisible) Dodge/Ram repair information. Cummins designed the engines, but Dodge wrote the repair information. See the problem? Very little practical diagnostic information was ever published, and what there is lacks any explanation of the purpose of each test, or a clear direction to go with the results. But we have a solution!

This manual and class were designed specifically to give technicians a clear diagnostic path for engine management and emissions concerns. We spent months collecting and comparing technical information to fill in the holes, and then diagnosed and repaired these vehicles to validate everything we found. This manual is the only place you'll find explanations that not only tell you which tests to run in what order and what the test results should be, but why, and what your options are when a test fails.
