Push Button Ignition

Push Button Ignition is very common on today’s vehicles. These systems can be broken down into 3 broad categories: Immobilizer, Steering Lock and ACC/Run/Crank Relay Control. This class will assist technicians in developing a diagnostic routine for handling the common complaint of “I press the button and nothing happens”. The instructor will emphasize system understanding, and scan data interpretation. Tools used to check for Low Frequency and Radio Frequency wireless transmissions will also be discussed.

Discussion topics include the following vehicles:

  • 2011 Nissan Maxima
  • 2012 Toyota Camry
  • 2018 Ford Edge
  • 2006 VW Passat
  • 2015 Ford Mustang

A detailed handout will be provided.
