Videos - PicoDiagnostics

The automotive diagnostic videos provided here show you what you can do with your Automotive Diagnostics Kit. They are an invaluable training resource and demonstrate how PicoScope and the Automotive Diagnostics Kit can be used to find a variety of vehicle faults.


Propshaft balancing

Steve goes through the propshaft balancing feature in PicoDiagnostic, showing you how the software guides you through the process and helps you balance the propshaft correctly. 

PicoScope Battery Test

In this video Eric O. shows how to use the PicoScope to perform a battery test to determine the quality of an automotive battery before replacing it. 

Relative compression testing using a Pico automotive scope

PicoDiagnostics removes the need for current clamps to be used to view relative compression during engine cranking, and displays the results in an easy to understand bar graph.

Misfire diagnosis and cylinder balance testing using a Pico automotive scope

PicoDiagnostics software can be used to quickly test the relative power output (power balance) and count the number of misfires from each cylinder. This can rapidly show problems such as power loss due to ignition issues, blocked injectors or poor compression.

Test batteries, alternators and starter motors using a Pico automotive scope

PicoDiagnostics software can be used to test the battery (12 V or 24 V), alternator (for charging and diode ripple), starter motor and associated wiring. You can then print an easy to the understand report for your customer. The test is so quick to do that it's worthwhile doing on every vehicle that comes into your shop.
