This is a digital oscilloscope, which allows data to be displayed on a PC. 6 Multiscope can be used for a large number of vehicle tests. The waveforms used as examples in this book were ‘captured’ using this device. This type of test equipment is highly recommended. 2 Waveforms You will find the words ‘waveform’, ‘pattern’ and ‘trace’ are used in books and workshop manuals but they mean the same thing.

Measuring the current normally taken by their circuits is used to carry out a check on actuators. Powering the actuator and observing the reaction of the system can test the function of an actuator in some cases. If discrepancies to the nominal values are diagnosed, the information is stored in an internal fault memory together with other parameters, such as engine temperature or speed. In this way, defects that appear intermittent or only under certain conditions can be diagnosed. If a fault occurs only once during a set period of time, it is deleted.

In other words, knowing what each part of the system should do in turn helps in determining how each part actually works. It is again important to stress that the links and interactions between various sub-systems are a very important consideration. Examples of this would be how the power demands of the vehicle lighting system will have an effect on the charging system operation, or in the case of a fault, how an air leak from a brake servo could cause a weak air/fuel ratio.
