Classes Description:

EEPROM & Soldering Class - Sean Preuss - Friday 8AM-5PM - $250

Soldering class Course Objective: This course will provide an introduction to, practice with and real world application of identifying, soldering, and desoldering components within automotive electronic security systems. There will be a brief introduction to acquiring automotive data directly from storage devices within the automotive security systems. 

Description: All the necessary equipment to locate, remove and reapply data storage devices in automotive security modules will be supplied for use within the course. This class is focused on the physical side of EEPROM work as it pertains to the removal of devices from the security circuits. A brief explanation of acquiring their data and a lengthy explanation of returning the devices without damage to the modules or devices will be provided. Class Goal: Upon completion of this class each student will have gained 4 hours of actual hands-on practice desoldering, fluxing, cleaning, and resoldering devices as they pertain to automotive security system work.

Requirements: Each student must provide a working automotive remote that contains at least an 8 leg component.

Eeprom class Objective: This course will provide an introduction to identifying data storage devices and the use of real world equipment to acquire, read, modify, and reprogram these devices with the goal of producing transponders to start vehicles economically.

Description: The class we will begin with simple in circuit examples of reading EEPROMs. It will then move on to removing EEPROMs from the circuit, reading them with multiple pieces of equipment and then modifying the data. The latest available equipment will be used to produce a transponder that will ultimately be able to start vehicles including water recreational vehicles and motorcycles. With the manufacturers increasing security and the increase in diagnostic equipment costs and fees to use said equipment, EEPROM work may be the last hope to produce keys for cars in the future. Class Goal: With provided equipment, students will gain actual hands-on experience of how transponders work at a computer level and with the knowledge to proceed into the future of automotive key generation. This class will instill confidence in the student's ability to continue profiting with key generation and with very little capital equipment investment.

Note: Students are also encouraged to bring real world modules and transponder containing electronics from cars and motorcycles for use in the class. It should be kept in mind that the more legs a device has, the more time it will take to desolder said device. Please keep in mind that if components are removed in advance, that there will be no way of inspecting your work.
