In our last Premium member meeting, we learned some basics about the 555 timer IC. This chip is amazing as it has been around for so many years and continues to be a part of many electronic devices.  A video is going to be provided to ALL members & my YouTube channel showing the 3 modes of the 555, this is a very easy demonstration that can help you understand the relationship of  Resistance and Capacitance (RC) circuits.

The next premium member meeting is scheduled for July 29th 2020 @ 8Pm and we will be discussing the basics of Fuel Trims. Next to a lack of understanding when it comes to basic electricity, not understanding fuel trims is the largest cause of misdiagnosis and frustration for technicians. I will be working on a new course to share with Core and Premium members as I wok to learn the pitfalls that techs suffer from the most when it comes to fuel trims.
