Intermittent Electrical and Drivability Diagnostics Strategies

ATG training manuals & seminars contain great strategies for thinking your way through a diagnosis. However, many diagnostic situations first call for duplicating the symptom or code, and this can be extremely frustrating. Well, now there’s a seminar just for this problem! We’ve developed a repeatable strategy for flushing out these elusive faults. Class runs on June 1st and June 2nd, 6:30pm – 10pm each evening, both evenings required. Cost: $199.00.
