From the Author
Automotive Electronic Diagnostics (Course-2) is the second of this 2 book series that deals with this subject. This course 2 covers in great detail how to interpret automotive wiring diagrams and most important of all, how to follow the current path. Subject matter such as current path, data path on automotive networked computers, motor ripple counter, and various other automotive circuits. This book is a natural follow up to part-1 or course-1, which deals with principles of electronics and various automotive components. Both these books are compliments and companions to a DVD-Video series by the same tittle. These two books should also prepare anyone interested in the automotive repair and diagnostic field for the present and future state of automotive technology.
