Wide Band Sensors: Understanding the Latest in Feedback Technology

Supplying feedback information about the oxygen content of the exhaust to the PCM has changed and it has come in the form of a Wide Band Sensor (aka: air fuel sensor). How we diagnose these new sensors is much different. The tools we use can and will affect the results of our testing and many times may cause the diagnosis to be incorrect. These sensors are critical to Catalytic Converter operation and proper diagnosis is the key to getting the vehicle fixed right the first time.

Join us during SEMA to learn how mastering proper testing techniques of these critical sensors can add to your bottom line!

Date: Wednesday November 6, 2013
