I have been working on heavy equipment diesel & electrics for over 30 years,
You might feel like saying that I should stay there,
My hobby is electronics, I have used oscolloscopes in the last century
I would like to experiment on cars with my Picoscope, it’s a nice challenge
2009 A 4224 scope, wps 500, first look sensor & a few other bits best purchase of my life
I use it quiet a lot on, cold starting , charging , batt testing etc etc , an unending list,
Solonoide valves buried deep in transmissions can be verified instantly saving lots of hard work
I use an injector pulse sensor on old diesels, I can check timing, compression, valves, the list goes on
I recently identified no 3 piston problem on a old Volvo loader, no electrics on that machine,
with the use of my Picoscope, and not even lifting the bonnett, I was able to confirm this
My Pico is just amazing piece of equipment should have purchaced sooner, the sky is the limit
My SantaFe is hobby/helping a friend & showing him what can be done with a Picoscope
staritng to use pico help site uploading captures what & how to send etc just learning ?
feeling my way on The SantaFe, are the coils driven from the ecu, but looking at the voltage waveform it looks like a transistor driver, I don’t have a circuit diagram
so with my Picoscope and your advice, I feel that I should easily make that call and get it right first time is it high resistance prmary? , current ramp diminshing with no voltage change ?
The Picoscope is undoubtly the most versatile piece of test equipment I have used
I could fill several pages so I better finish here.
