Automotive Electrical and Electronic Systems
Part of the Basic Automotive Series, Automotive Electrical and Electronic Systems can be used in any introductory course in automotive electronics and electricity. The text opens with up-to-date coverage of electricity, magnetism, and semi-conductors. Topics that follow include starting systems, lighting systems, power accessorties, and the latest electronic systems, including speed controls and - new to this edition - automotive micro-computers. Also new to this text are ignition and passive restraint systems. The accompanying shop manual provides detailed coverage of specific repairs and service techniques using step-by-step procedures. The text and its correlated shop manual help prepare students for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification; it also provides end-of-chapter questions that use a format similar to the ASE tests. The contents of both volumes are based on the competencies and standards set by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.
