The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) is hosting a free webinar for service technicians at 4 p.m. ET Tuesday, Feb. 15 entitled “Push-Button Start Systems.”
Passive entry and start systems using a "smart key" have been available on select vehicles for many years. These systems allow drivers to leave the key in their pocket while both entering and starting the vehicle. The smart key communicates wirelessly with a receiver which then communicates with other modules over a wired network. These systems are typically very reliable, but when they fail and a vehicle will not start, technicians will need to understand how they work to diagnose them.
ASE says the goal of this webinar by Darren Beanard with Standard Motor Products is to prepare the technician to be ready to diagnose and repair push-button start systems. Technicians will learn to differentiate between a smart key system fault and a module-controlled starter fault.
