I am a freelance automotive diagnostic consultant. I provide diagnostic assistance to the motor trade in my local area.
I started my apprenticeship nearly 40 years ago now. For the last 30 years or so I have been involved in the diagnostic aspect, both for franchised dealerships and more recently, independent garages.
Diagnostics has been, and continues to be, my driving passion. I have a special interest in Digital Storage Oscilloscope (DSO) diagnostics. Ever since my first digital scope, a Fluke 199 Scopemeter, I have been amazed by what it can reveal, “usually after a lot of analysis and interpreting or head scratching”. It is a never-ending learning process and continues to fascinate me.
My favoured scope now is the Picoscope 4 channel 4000 series. In my opinion it represents the very best instrument choice for the automotive diagnostic technician. It took some time for me to “hang up” my Fluke, but I really feel the Pico is much more useful.
This site is where I would like to share some of my work.
