14 years is quite a gap but when you get your PicoScope put aside some time to look at signals on a vehicle with no faults. Looking at the waveforms and using the guided tests to help you understand them is the best way I know of really understanding how a modern vehicle works.
things have changed my background is in pcv/ lgv now i am learning cars ( i think i got this the wrong way around? i was ment to work on cars first then the big stuff right ) well i did it my way i have been working for a local hospital as a electrical /mecanical tech but the job may be going soon so here i am at 40 starting again but i do like electronics so this is a help by the way i am in cornwall i hope to be of help to others when i learn how to do it myself.

Hi Bill, First of all welcome!! , secondly don't worry, somebody has to live in Cornwall . You know you'll get all the help you need here Bill, I was just surprised the Hospital couldn't help, . . .OK I'm done with the jokes, you know where to come for any help. Good luck getting back into it, your a brave man!
Thanks Kev your right someone has to live in sunny cornwall got the scope today so will be trying it asap a bit diferant to the lab scopes we used in the hospital. i am hopeing to get some work with a local auto sparks to kick start me as he is old school ( you do'nt need a scope to repair a car so we will see if i can sort some problems he can't ) but he is a very good auto sparks just need to try to bring him up to date
