The Multiplexed Vehicle -a Maintenance Time Bomb!? 960391

The lack of knowledge of multiplex technology among mechanics is a cause for concern, and is therefore a threat to the successful introduction of multiplex.Today, a majority of Electronic Control Modules replaced at maintenance and/or service occasions are in fact fault free. A significant reason for this is that mechanics replaces wrong parts due to lack of understanding of how the electronic system works.With multiplex, this problem can increase an order of magnitude - if it is not recognised. The need for better training and education of maintenance personnel increases rapidly.Multimedia training courses in multiplex technology (general and vehicle specific) is a good opportunity to meet this need. Such a training course is as a proposal integrated in a PC/CD-ROM based Diagnostic tool.With this approach, the maintenance personnel can receive a high class, Just-In-Time, and enjoyable training program.
