Synopsis:

TODAY'S TECHNICIAN: ADVANCED AUTOMOTIVE ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS, is the ideal book to prepare readers to excel in today's automotive repair industry. This book is an extension of the popular "Today's Technician" series that covers all mechanical and electrical systems of automobiles and light trucks. It is divided into two volumes: a Classroom Manual and a Shop Manual. The Classroom Manual contains the principles of operation for the most advanced electrical systems used today and covers design variations of components used by the different vehicle manufacturers and provides readers the opportunity to transfer important capabilities to improve their performance. The Shop Manual covers the diagnostic processes for proper repairs and focuses more on the diagnostics of the components used within a system than on how to replace the component. It also guides readers toward finding the root cause of the problem, concentrating their attention on becoming a diagnostician and not a "parts changer", thereby enhancing their ability to fix products right the first time.
