Automotive Wiring and Electrical Systems (Workbench Series)

Price: points - Details)


Often, wiring and electrical work intimidate automotive do-it-yourselfers more than anything else. It’s not mechanical, and therefore, it’s unfamiliar territory. Electrons are invisible, and to an untrained enthusiast they can do unpredictable things. Finally, here is an enthusiast’s guide that takes the mysteries and misunderstandings out of automotive electrical design, modification, diagnostics, and repair.

Automotive Wiring and Electrical Systems is the perfect book to unshroud the mysteries of automotive electrics and electronic systems. The basics of electrical principles, including voltage, amperage, resistance, and Ohm’s law, are revealed in clear and concise detail so the enthusiast understands what these mean in the construction and repair of automotive electrical circuits. All the tools and the proper equipment required for automotive electrical tasks are covered. In addition, this in-depth guide explains how to perform more complex tasks, such as adding new circuits, installing aftermarket electronics, repairing existing circuits, and troubleshooting. It also explains how to complete popular wiring projects, such as adding late-model electronic accessories and convenience items to earlier-model cars, installing relay systems, designing and assembling multi-function circuits and harnesses, and much more.

With this book in hand, you will be able to assemble, design, and build single- and multi-function circuits and harnesses, troubleshoot and repair existing circuits, and install aftermarket systems and electronics. Automotive Wiring and Electrical Systems is the perfect book for wiring a hot rod from scratch, modifying muscle car electrical circuits for cooling fans and/or power windows, or adding a big stereo and other conveniences to modern performance cars.

Automotive Wiring and Electrical Systems is the perfect book to unshroud the mysteries of automotive electrics and electronic systems.

Installing an aftermarket tachometer is a common upgrade for many vehicles. You will be shown how to wire it into the ignition system, install the ground wire, and make professional connections. This book will show you how to professionally install a wide range of accessories, including stereo equipment.

All the electrical tools you will need are covered in this book, including the Digital Multi Meter (DMM). Shown here is the Radio Shack DMM, which combines the range and selector switch into a single control. This makes the meter far less versatile than more expensive models like the Fluke 87, but it can be owned for a fraction of the cost.

Quality connections are essential in all electrical work. All types of connections and how to make them are covered here, including crimping with non-insulated and insulated connectors, crimping with a hexagonal compound crimping tool, crimping with a hammer crimp tool and soldering every type of connection important in any automotive application, including soldering terminals and soldering into pre-existing circuits.

Finally, after mastering the basics, we get to a complete chapter on troubleshooting, followed by advance installation and interfaces and even the building of your own custom wiring harness. The use of relays is extensively covered, with easy to read schematics and step by step instruction. Automotive Wiring and Electrical Systems is the perfect book for wiring a hot rod from scratch, modifying muscle car electrical circuits for cooling fans and/or power windows, or adding a big stereo and other conveniences to modern performance cars.
