The EM-250-2A Electronic Programmable Fault Box for ECM and HVAC is designed to allow remote system fault insertion into the GM ECOTEC 2.2L engine bench. This product comes standard with computer software that allows remote control of the fault box from a laptop or desktop computer.  The fault box can also be controlled at the fault box installed on the engine bench.  The fault box comes equipped with a lockable door.


Educational Advantages:

  • Allows the insertion or removal of component and/or system faults without having to replace or disconnect components
  • Engine systems and components respond to inserted faults with real-world operating symptoms, OEM DTC’s, and scan tool operation
  • Provides student learning opportunities for diagnostic skills without the need of an entire vehicle
  • Multiple NATEF tasks in the Engine Repair, Electrical and Engine Performance areas can be accomplished using this product
  • Intermittent faults can be inserted with individual adjustments for fault duration and duty cycle


  • 16 Engine faults dealing with sensors, components and wiring
  • Software to allow control of the fault box from a remote computer
  • Intermittent fault conditions of all 16 programmed faults
  • Lockable door cover
  • USB receptacle for remote hookup
  • Eight faults controlling open circuits in components and sensors
  • Eight faults with variable adjustments of voltage and/or conditions
  • Any number of faults can be inserted at the same time


  • 2007 and newer Chevrolet Cobalt or Pontiac G5 with VIN (vehicle identification number) included

I got the half car out of the crate and working yesterday and today I had my Level 3 Electronic Climate Control diagnostics lab using it. This teaching aid is great! The workmanship and design is excellent and it is just perfect for the Level 3 curriculum, including the upcoming changes. We were fortunate that the IPro scan tool we received from the Uniselect donation communicates quite well with the Audi CAN bus system. The Audi also has the electronically controlled, clutchless compressor which is covered in our theory classes so it's a good reinforcement to be able to see it in action, manipulate it and communicate with it. I am very pleased with the quality and applicability of our ConsuLab products (including the engine/AC bench we got recently). They allow me to teach up to 8 students in great detail, whereas only one or two at a time can be involved in a full car. I am looking forward to the imminent arrival of our AC board. Thanks for your excellent insight of design and quality of manufacturing.
