    Default Car electronics diagnostics

    I got this tip from a YouTube channel.
    For anyone wanting to understand how to diagnose car electronics problems, with a scanner, there is a website called scannerdanner.com. The guy sells a 400 page book, either in print or online version, with really practical hands on instruction on working out exactly what is wrong with malfunctioning motors. Personally, I paid for the online version, and am really impressed. It include links to other YT videos the author has made, which demonstrate what he is talking about in the book. Cost about $A80.

    Scanner danner is a flog people like that teaching young mechanics is a problem and the reason most people in the trade are no where.

    What sort of nonsense statement is that?

    His methods are mostly wrong he struggles with the basics of how some sensors work and then says sometimes oh well I canít figure it out so I will throw x y or z at it. I will take the Pepsi challenge with him any day everyone of my apprentices that I have put through have gone on to be really good mechanics.
    He is supposed to be teaching mechanics not diyers .

    Oh I see, he does it differently to you, so he is a "flog", whatever that means.
    As ever, nay sayers everywhere.

    Well, for anyone else, I am personally endorsing the quality of the information and instruction, as was the professional diesel mechanic on whose YT channel I heard about SD. But feel free to buy dmccurtayne's book if you choose.
