Reminded me of many basic electrical basics I forgot, and taught me some I never knew. Good book. BUT, if you are not mechanically inclined, and not willing to learn, then don't bother. Requires the concept of THINKING to benefit from what is offered in this book. But you knew that deep down.

HASH(0x9a33d99c) out of 5 stars If you do electrical work....Buy IT! Dec 9 2006
By Sherilyn Collins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have been a backyard mechanic for about 10 years. The last 3 years, I have gotten much more serious by expnading my knowledge, tools, supplies and work load. During all this expansion, I promised myself I would learn electronics and really start getting serious with the subject. Every method I tried to learn electronics, I just couldnt grasp the advanced (useful) concepts. I tried several online courses, on the job training, other electrical manuals, pretty much everything. I found this book at my local library and it seemed like it would cover everything I wanted to learn. Within three days, I had everything I wanted to know practically memorized. The fourth day I spent about $100 in tools and supplies so I could practice what I learned. I have read this book front to back and already fixed several problems in my car and home. I just cant say enough good about this book. Not only is it well written and easy to understand, the topics go in order and have excellent pictures to match. I will return the library book and get one for myself. The only thing I can say negatively about this book is that the publish date is about 15 years old. Not much has changed since then, especially the basic concepts the book teaches. Overall, If you need to learn how to understand, troubleshoot, overhaul, or replace anything electronic that is automotive based; this book is for you!

HASH(0x9a33d9f0) out of 5 stars Haynes Automotive Electrical Maunal June 24 2005
By DJHokaj - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is fantastic in explaining how to find and fix a problem with a cars electrical system. Tells you what tools to use, how to use them, and how to go about making repairs. This book is a must for any weekend mechanic who gets anxious at the thought of working on electircal problems.

HASH(0x9a33d264) out of 5 stars Exactly what I expected. March 27 2013
By GweeterMaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I chose 4 stars because I have used Haynes manuals before (Saab 9-3), and I knew that it would contain enough information for me to get stuff done myself, and not have to pay someone exorbitant amounts of $ to do simple/intermediate/slightly advanced things... but not 5 stars because Haynes manuals fall short of perfection. What they need are bigger/better pictures/diagrams for some things, and more succinct explanations of some tasks. The wording is sometimes confusing, but then, they are a British based company, so that's kind of expected too.

Tool descriptions and pictures (however low contrast they are, they are still helpful)

"crash course" in electrical theory

***DIAGNOSIS STEPS*** <-this is by far the biggest reason to get this book... You can spend hours, if not DAYS hunting down shorts or other circuit issues, but their methodology saves you TONS of time and frustration.

Paper quality is meh (my dad was a printer, so I'm a paper snob though... :) ). The reason that this is important is that since the paper quality is basically a grade above newspaper, the image quality suffers. The paper browns over time slightly, and the ink fades a little. That combined with a loose tooth on the paper makes for very low-contrast images. They are still discernible however, and most people would probably tell me I'm being too picky... :)

Some descriptions are worded in ways that make procedures a little hard to follow... but a few re-reads usually does the trick.

Overall: A good book that I got used at a great price. Totally worth it. If you are wanting to learn enough to start working on your car without ruining stuff inside it... This is the way to go. I recommend it.

HASH(0x9a4a18ac) out of 5 stars Automotive electrical Nov. 11 2010
By Ralph Henderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a good, fairly comprehensive book on basic automotive wiring. It gives enough information that you can proceed without always having a schematic or a step by step, connect the dots, diagram. Well worth the cost.

HASH(0x9a33f348) out of 5 stars basic and simple April 21 2008
By Osorio Batres Silvia Rebeca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you have no clue whatsoever about electricity and cars then this book will be a first step to understanding. I bought this book years ago when there were not that many books on the subject available but since then far better books have come on the market and if you can only afford one or just want to buy one book then I suggest tracy martins book. I hope I dont give the impression that this is a bad book, it isnt, the problem is it is neither good or bad its just a simple overview.
