If you want to diagnose a simple alternator charging or headlight problem, this book is for you. But if you also want to fix complex electronic systems using On-Board Diagnostics, a multimeter or oscilloscope, this book also shows you how to do that.
- Is it best to use a series or parallel circuit when adding a horn?
- How do you use a multimeter to check a coolant temperature sensor against its specs?
- How can you add an electronic timer that will keep your headlights on as you walk to your door?
- When should you buy an oscilloscope – and how complex an instrument do you really need?
