Re: What is causing all this noise?

Although the Pico test leads and the PicoScope itself are screened the wires in the wiring loom of the car itself are not screened (to save cost and weight). The wires from the cam & crank sensors probably have other noisy signals running alongside them in the loom (ignition and injectors) causing t...

PicoScope battery test

The "The Disgruntled Mechanic" has just bought his first PicoScope. The first thing he tries out is the battery test app - a nice quick getting started video for the new or potential user.
