There should be no secondhand copies of this either,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Diagnose and Repair Automotive Electrical Systems (Motorbooks Workshop) (Paperback)
This is another excellent volume by Tracy Martin. It should really be studied before reading 'How to use Automotive Diagnostic Scanners'. I have been repairing electrical faults in the course of my hobby as what Mr Martin would describe as a 'shade tree mechanic' for many years. Whilst I have always got there in the end, the time I would have saved if I had bought this volume years ago, would be considerable. The book begins with basic theory, followed by voltage drop testing. A chapter on recommended tools includes information of how to make some really clever test items yourself. Chapters follow with a more detailed information on testing systems including the battery, starting and charging, ignition and fuel injection. The last chapter includes some test questions and answers. This will always be a useful reference book, unless perhaps you are an auto-electrician by occupation.
