Book Description

This textbook will help you learn all the skills you need to pass all Vehicle Electrical and Electronic Systems courses and qualifications.

As electrical and electronic systems become increasingly more complex and fundamental to the workings of modern vehicles, understanding these systems is essential for automotive technicians. For students new to the subject, this book will help to develop this knowledge, but will also assist experienced technicians in keeping up with recent technological advances. This new edition includes information on developments in pass-through technology, multiplexing, and engine control systems. In full colour and covering the latest course specifications, this is the guide that no student enrolled on an automotive maintenance and repair course should be without.

Designed to make learning easier, this book contains:

  • Photographs, flow charts, quick reference tables, overview descriptions and step-by-step instructions.
  • Case studies to help you put the principles covered into a real-life context.
  • Useful margin features throughout, including definitions, key facts and ‘safety first’ considerations.
