This course Automotive Electrics – A beginners guide, covers electrical basics including:

Volts, Amps, Resistance (Ohms), Ohms law, Kirchhoff’s current and voltage laws, Using a multimeter, how to do “Volt Drop”, How to measure Amps, using both a Amp Clamp and a Amp Meter, How to measure resistance and resistance scales, How to read wiring diagrams, How to check feeds and earths to consumers, How relays work and how to test, How to carry out drag tests on wiring and using wiring diagrams for electrical diagnosis.

There is also quizzes, downloadable course notes, videos, real life test cases, practice sheets and tests.

This is the basis on which all my courses are written on and I would strongly recommend starting with this course as my other courses require you to carry out tests using these basic principles.

These reference courses are aimed at the professional automotive technician however home mechanics, students and lecturers will equally find them very beneficial.
