Auto Electricity and Electronics is designed for students to prepare for the ASE Certification Test A6. However, students can take this course strictly to enhance their skills and knowledge as well. It is expected that students will be working in a shop environment in order to get the hands-on experience needed while going through the course and gaining the knowledge and theory of auto electricity and electronics. This course will be using digital content from the publisher Goodheart-Willcox, and the digital book Auto Electricity and Electronics, 7th Edition by James E. Duffy, Copyright 2021.

Auto Electricity and Electronics teaches the design, operation, and diagnosis of starting, charging, ignition, lighting, and other major systems. The text stresses the use of on-board diagnostics, as well as conventional meter tests, to find electrical, electronic, and computer-related problems. A chapter on advanced diagnostics covers the latest equipment and techniques used to locate problems. This is a valuable resource to those preparing for ASE Certification Test A6, Electrical/Electronic Systems.

  • Correlates to the Electrical/Electronic Systems section of the 2017 ASE Education Foundation Task List.
  • A full chapter on on-board diagnostics details OBD II systems and emphasizes the use of scan tools to help pinpoint computer system problems.
  • Two full chapters on hybrid drive systems cover the basic principles of operation, diagnosis, and repair.
