This is one of the most diff cult skills to learn. It is also one of the most important. The secret is twofold: ● ● know your own limitations – it is not possible to be good at everything; leave systems alone where you could cause more damage or even injury – for example, air bag circuits. Often with the best of intentions, a person new to diagnostics will not only fail to f nd the fault but also introduce more faults into the system in the process. I would suggest you learn your own strengths and weaknesses; you may be conf dent and good at dealing with mechanical system problems but less so when electronics is involved.

This is conf rmed on examination and also noted that the off side tail lights do not work 1. Two bulbs blown 2. Main lighting fusible link blown 3. 3 How long is a piece of string? Yes I know, twice the distance from the middle to one end. What I am really getting at here though is the issue about what is a valid reading or measurement and what is not – when compared to data. For example, if the ‘data source’ says the resistance of the component should be between 60 and 90 Ω, what do you do when the measured value is 55 Ω?

It may disappear in neutral coasts. Operating the engine at the problem speed while the vehicle is stationary can duplicate the vibration. It can be caused by any component, from the accessory drive belt to the clutch or torque converter, which turns at engine speed when the vehicle is stopped. 5 Noise and vibration while turning – clicking, popping or grinding noises may be due to the following: damaged CV joint; loose front wheel half shaft joint boot clamps; another component contacting the half shaft; worn, damaged or incorrectly installed wheel bearing; damaged powertrain/drivetrain mounts.
