Automotive Electricity and Electronics (Today's Technician: Automotive Electricity & Electronics)by Barry Hollembeak
Synopses & Reviews
The best-selling book/shop manual package in our landmark Today's Technician series, the third edition of Automotive Electricity and Electronics continues to equip its readers with the most in-depth discussion of basic theory, safety, tools, and major automotive electrical/electronic systems (e.g., charging, starting, ignition, lighting, accessories, instruments, and computers) available anywhere! In response to user feedback, we've added more information about voltage, current, and resistance in order to aid readers who are new to this area of study in visualizing electrical/electronic principles at work. We've also increased our emphasis on developing the future technician's ability to use manufacturers' service information, given more prominence to diagnostic methods in the discussion of troubleshooting, and updated our coverage of testing equipment and OBD II. Perhaps most importantly, we've added many all-new examples to guide readers, step-by-step, to complete mastery of all of the electrical/electronic knowledge plus hands-on diagnostic and troubleshooting skills they need to become highly skilled automotive technicians. Helpful cross-references between theory discussed in the book and step-by-step procedures outlined in the shop manual are also included for optimal learning effectiveness.
The newest edition of this classroom and shop manual set continues to provide unsurpassed coverage of the theory and procedures for automotive electricity and electronics. Streamlined diagnostic and service procedures and added attention to data bus networks, including the CAN, LIN, ISO, and other common systems, are highlighted in this revision. Expanded coverage of vehicle accessory systems includes the new multi-stage air bag systems, weight classification systems, side air bag systems, and laser guided cruise control systems. An all-new chapter on hybrid and high voltage systems is also featured.
Unsurpassed in coverage of the theory and procedures for automotive electricity and electronics, the newest edition of this highly successful classroom and shop manual is guaranteed to instill both the knowledge and skills critical to success in the industry. TODAY'S TECHNICIAN: AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRICITY and ELECTRONICS, 5TH EDITION has been updated to offer a more streamlined presentation of diagnostic and service procedures, as well as additional attention to data bus networks, including the CAN, LIN, ISO, and other common systems. The book also features expanded coverage of vehicle accessory systems, including the new multi-stage air bag systems, weight classification systems, side air bag systems, and laser-guided cruise control systems. An all-new chapter on hybrid and high voltage systems rounds out the up-to-date content, ensuring readers gain a strong working knowledge that of the latest industry trends and technologies.
