Introduction to Automotive Electrical Systems
PHOTOGRAPHY, COMPUTERS, & AUTOMOTIVE -
This is a beginner course in basic automotive electrical systems and wiring diagrams and no previous training or experience is needed. We will slowly cover electrical theory one step at a time, covering the three automotive electrical circuit types, series circuits, parallel circuits and combinations, and characteristics and examples of each. We will also cover an introduction to automotive electrical testing and common failures affecting load components.
This course will be important toward understanding more complex automotive electronics and components like alternators, starters and ignition pulse transformers. Completion of this course will be a needed for more advanced topics.
