Reading wiring diagrams and decoding the German DIN standard are also covered.Whether you are a DIY mechanic or a professional technician, The Hack Mechanic Guide to European Automotive Electrical Systems will increase your confidence in tackling automotive electrical problem-solving.This book applies to gasoline and diesel powered internal combustion engine vehicles.
