This is a
HOW-TO electrical book entitled,
Electrical Troubleshooting SHORTCUTS."
This book is for the beginner through professional auto, truck or heavy equipment
service technician who needs more
electrical troubleshooting training.
That's just about everybody!
Test electrical circuits
On-The-Vehicle quickly to determine
if there is an electrical problem in the primary electrical system and what repairs are needed.
Test the battery for state of charge and cranking power in 10 seconds. Find a battery problem that burns up a good generator.
Test a slow
cranking problem in 3 quick steps that takes less than 2 minutes at most.
Test any charging system in 60 seconds. Do all this On-The-Vehicle
with just a DMM and Current Clamp using the troubleshooting techniques
covered in SHORTCUTS.
All this electrical training is combined in one volume suitable for home study and/or
Packed full of how-to-do electrical troubleshooting procedures
that are effective in finding problems and save valuable testing and troubleshooting time which will increase
your profits, prevent changing parts and save time. No more guessing about what's causing an electrical
problem. Find out and fix it right the first time.
Vince's book, SHORTCUTS,
covers sections presented in the Phase 1 Electrical Workshops and even more electrical topics. SHORTCUTS is available as a fully self-contained
text/work/book with step-by-step electrical testing procedures to follow. Also has review questions after each of the seven sections with
the answers in the back of the book.
If you are ready to get into serious electrical training that teaches you how to do electrical repairs with hands-on exercises then we suggest you consider our Phase 1 Curriculum which includes a copy of SHORTCUTS.
