Auto Electricity & Electronics Technology

I've just got back the the Technical Educators of Oregon conference at Mt. Hood Community College near Portland Oregon. I was given a free copy of the the text book "Auto Electricity & Electronic Technology". I've reviewed the entire book for lesson plans for classes I teach, and will usw most of the material.

Most do-it-yourself mechanics have some technical training. The author James E. Duffy does an excellent job with the technical writing. The book is written for a beginner, but many do-it-yourself mechanics could also benefit from the new information provided on late model cars.

Auto Electricity & Electronic Technology is published by http://goodheartwillcox.com in Tinley, Illinois, (800) 323-0440.

The total teaching package which includes the book (574 pages), a workbook (262 pages) and the instructor's guide (114 pages) sell for about $78.00. The series is a preparation for ASE certification testing.

Re: Auto Electricity & Electronics Technology

Many people don't realize what a valuable resource the textbooks that are used in auto tech courses can be. People think textbook, their eyes cross and they fall asleep. My stepson is in the last semester of the auto tech curriculum at San Juan College (#2 auto program in the nation), and I am always referring to the various texts from his courses. I need to dig up his auto electric book and see which one it is. (I spent a couple hours yesterday messing with the dash lights on my CJ, they suddenly quit working a couple months ago, aargh!) There are several books they use that I have used many times, the trans, t-case and diff book is a good example. People would do good to go to their local college bookstore and browse thru the auto tech section.

Re: Auto Electricity & Electronics Technology

Thanks for the kind thoughts, the book I mention is an all new book. It's just been released into publication.

Re: Auto Electricity & Electronics Technology

Thanks for the info.
I love doing rewiring on my vehicles, I know I must be nuts, most people hate it.
My jeeps overhead console looks like a the control panel on the space shuttle, and everytime a run a wire somewhere, Ive learned to runa loom of least 4 or 5 wires because Ill probbably be running something else there eventually. Where could a text book like that be ordered from?

Re: Auto Electricity & Electronics Technology

The only book I've seen in print that would demonstrate rewiring a vehicle is "Hot Rod Wiring", by Tim Remus & Dennis Overholsser (ISBN # 0-9641358-6-8). My personal opinion of this book is that it's mostly about using Painless Wiring Products, with just enough basic wiring information to get you started.

Re: Auto Electricity & Electronics Technology

I agree completely about the 'Basic Hot Rod Wiring'....
It's the instructions that should have come with a painless wiring harness....
