Automotive Electrical Concepts
What you'll learn
- The basic settings on a Digital Volt Ohm Meter
- How to identify the different parts of an electrical circuit
- How to successfully perform a voltage drop test
- How to read and follow an automotive wiring diagram
- None(We recommend you take our Automotive 101 course but, it is not required.)
This course describes the electric components and flow of electricity in the automobile. We will break down circuits and tell about each component in the electric system as well. We also have a lecture dedicated to the volt ohm meter and how to operate and read it in terms of electrical voltage. This knowledge is basic knowledge needed in order to properly diagnose automotive electrical problems. This will aid in development of skills to diagnose and trace electrical problems that may occur. This will also help give the knowledge of electrical flow for troubleshooting issues with your personal vehicles. Our aim with this course is to increase the amount of general knowledge about the automotive electrical system and provide a great basis for anyone to know how to diagnose basic electrical issues on the automobile. This course is based on the 12 volt system and the negatively grounded vehicles. Some exotic vehicles are positively grounded and we do not cover those vehicles in this course. Please feel free to watch the previews of the videos in the course at no charge to see if the pace and layout is right for your learning needs. We are here to provide you with the most correct and best knowledge we know how to provide.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone with the desire to work on their own vehicle or develop a deeper understanding of the automotive electrical system
My name is Scott Greene and I have been an Automotive Technician since 1983 which means I have been in the automotive industry in some form for the past 33 years. I have an ASE Master Certification in Automotive Technology, Advanced Electronics, and Diesel Technology. I also have a Level 3 Career Technical Endorsement in Automotive Technology or the equivalent of an Associates Degree in Technical Education.
I began my career as a technician working for various Automotive Dealerships and eventually worked my way into owning my own Automotive Repair Business. After 11 years of running a successful automotive business I determined it was time to change my career path and become an instructor. This move has been very successful and I am now using my experience to motivate and share knowledge with those who desire a career in the automotive industry.
