WORLDPAC STX2018 - Dallas
The NASTF road show pulled into Dallas just in time for one of the biggest rain storms of the year. Imagine driving in a car wash. The rain did not slow down the WTI/CTI training machine delivering 168 training classes over 3 days. NASTF is very grateful to Bob Cushing, Rob Morrell, Mark Warren and Chris Chesney for the amazing promotion of NASTF at the event. Local girl Vania was on hand to sign up new members while Donny Seyfer talked tech with visitors to our trade show booth. We average 21 new members per hour limited only by the number of tablets we had going. We signed up 126 new members during the show and they are still coming in. Mercedes TRP was our most popular topic. We enjoyed seeing so many NASTF supporters and vehicle security professionals at the event. Thank you again to all involved.
Vania and Donny did not have time to take this picture until 5 minutes after the show closed.
KIA CAN and TPMS interference TSBs - Save diagnostic time.
Since 2011 KIA has been producing documents outlining issues that can occur with their CAN equipped vehicles when certain devices are introduced to the vehicle electrical system. KIA is not unique in this problem however there are some drivability problems that can be very frustrating for techs to diagnose. These can be remedied by identifying and removing these devices. You will find links to 3 different TSBs that identify the problem, the devices that cause it and solutions. For those of you who want the bottom line DLC Dongles are particularly troublesome and can cause diagnostic failures and drivability problems. Another source of issues are non-us navigation/infotainment devices that create noise in the U.S. TPMS frequency of 315 MHz where U.S. vehicles are not shielded. This can result in difficult to find TPMS warning indication.
