Diagnosing and Repairing Catalyst and O2 Monitor Failures
Course number: SV-11246-11B1
The technology used in controlling the oxygen sensor monitor has become very complex. This advanced course will guide you through the sophisticated strategies of the oxygen sensors and its logic. The many new types of oxygen sensors, from standard zirconia to planar to wideband/air fuel, all have different diagnostic techniques.
We will also discuss the close relationship between the catalyst efficiency test and the oxygen sensor diagnostic strategy. You will learn how to get the most out of your scan tool in diagnosing O2 and catalyst failures, as well as verifying the repair to help prevent unnecessary comebacks.
