Tracy Martin, an ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) Certified Master Technician, explains the principles behind automotive electrical systems and how they work.

This book details the various tools, such as multimeters and test lights, that can be used to evaluate and troubleshoot any vehicle's electrical system. Several hands-on projects take readers on a guided tour of their vehicle's electrical system and demonstrate how to fix specific problems.
