Item Description

The Hack Mechanic Guide to European Automotive Electrical Systems offers everyone the opportunity to effectively tackle one of the most complicated components of the European vehicle. This is a comprehensive how-to on European car electrical system procedures, providing simplified instruction on diagnosis, maintenance and repair.

The specific European makes covered by this comprehensive manual are:

  • Audi
  • BMW
  • Mercedes
  • MINI
  • Porsche
  • Volkswagen

Accompanied by a library of full color illustrations and step-by-step procedures, the European car electrical system procedures here cover both theory and practical application. While itís a good idea to have a little understanding of these sensitive components, this book will put you in the driverís seat for adding new circuits, determining issues with a bad fuel pump relay or measuring voltage drops.

Get ready to get all the info you need on the:

  • Alternator
  • Battery
  • Circuits
  • DIN Standard
  • Energy Diagnosis
  • Fuses
  • Ignition
  • Modules & Buses
  • Multimeters & Related Tools
  • Parasitic Drain
  • Relays
  • Starter
  • Switches
  • Wire Repairs
  • Wiring Harnesses

If your productions involve European car electrical system procedures, youíre going to appreciate the way this publication leverages long tested and proven practices used to maintain these imported vehicles. But the smart mechanic will also see the principles here can be applied to conventional internal combustion engines engineered over the last 60 years. The info on diagnosing sensors alone will be useful for the average modern car.

The Hack Mechanic Guide to European Automotive Electrical Systems walks a fine line. It covers complex issues under the assumption the reader doesnít know electrical work. Yet, the material contains enough information that the seasoned pro will learn something from the tons of illustrations and sidebars providing in-depth information. This book will make you feel like a pro in no time. Easy to follow instructions, tons of illustrations and real world examples. You couldnít ask for more on European car electrical system procedures.

NOTE: This book covers gasoline and diesel powered internal combustion engine vehicles. It does not contain information for managing electric or hybrid vehicles.

Perfect Item, Shipped Promptly
I ordered this book as a Christmas gift, on the recommendation of someone in our car club.

The book arrived 100% NEW, clean and shrink wrapped, (unlike some books I have purchased elsewhere which came looking used) and the pricing here for this book was lower than on Amazon. Our experience was perfect and we will buy from you again.
