Electric Air Conditioning (A/C) systems used in hybrid, plug-in, and electric vehicles are unlike the belt-driven systems used in traditional vehicles; technicians will have a firm understanding of these systems, how A/C systems can be used to cool battery packs, how to select the correct compressor oils, and testing compressors using Scan Tools and special tools. Learn how cooling/heating systems operate, effect vehicle performance and fuel economy, and diagnostic strategies for repairing them to correct failures.
