    Topic 3: " Understanding Control Area Network (CAN)"Communications have been essential from the beginning of history. In the modern vehicle communications are vital in order to control the on board systems within the vehicle. The first electrical data communications was Morse Code, where on-off signals were timed to provide information that would be sent on a wire. This basic idea of on (high) - off (low) signals is still the main way on board vehicle communications send and receive communications. This class will cover how the Control Area Network (CAN) works, how to diagnose the CAN system, and how to properly repair bus problems. With many real world case studies you will learn how to quickly diagnose this advanced communication system where it counts, in your service bays. Bernie Thompson: Bernie Thompson is the owner of Automotive Test Solutions (ATS) with business partner Neal Pederson.
