Automotive Electronic Systems deals with the technological principles and practices used in modern electronic automotive systems. The book includes how electronic control units function in the whole electronic system of the car. After a brief introduction to the mechanical parts of the car, the electronic and microprocessor systems are discussed. Although electronic devices are controlled either by analogue or digital systems, the trend is toward the use of digital. The basic principles of operation of a microprocessor are therefore given attention by the author. Cars depend heavily on sensors, thus, the importance of the different sensors, such as temperature sensors, direct air flow sensors, and turbine flowmeters, is comprehensively explained. Another part of the automotive system is the actuators or relays and both the solenoid and motors are discussed. The operations of the electrical system from the generator, electronic ignition system, to electronic fuel control systems are examined. The book explains the choking device in the electronic fuel control system that is needed when starting a car or the throttle butterfly potentiometer that monitors the movement of the plate in the carburetor every time the accelerator pedal is pushed down or released. The other electronic and computer controlled devices in today's modern cars such as on-board computers and electronic control of body systems are also comprehensively discussed. This book is helpful to car engine enthusiasts, car mechanics, car electricians, operators of car diagnostic equipment, and instructors of automotive electronic systems.

Automotive : Prepare Your Heart. Start Your Engines.

For more than a hundred years, we have experienced the amazing power of motor-driven vehicles as it is undoubtedly convenient means of traveling around. In other words, we have became increasingly mobile in many ways that our capacities and desires are now largely driven by it. Not only that, such option also leads to many possibilities as it helps to broaden our horizons as we are driving around and looking for adventure. As such, we are no longer strangers to these mechanical beasts that we ride to work, travel, business and others.

At the same time, we are getting so used to this mean of transportation that we have always forgotten that these mechanical beasts still require maintenance and care, just like the real beasts of burden. While it is important to maintain your vehicles, you should take the opportunity to make ride as fun and comfortable at the same time. From the simple car pillow to car paint job, the possibilities in customizing your vehicles are just simply endless.

Automotive : Cars - Riding On The Storm

Capable of traversing the land, cars are magnificent beasts that can overcome seemingly any terrain. However, even these beasts require a lot of maintenance in order to run well. The proper maintenance of your car will make it lasts longer while performing better in the long run and less prone to breakdown. You will appreciate the value of maintaining your car when you suddenly found your car stops moving. In your hindsight, you will think it is definitely costs less in maintaining your car than having to fix it when it is having a problem. Hence, do not turn a blind eye to maintaining your car properly as you can prevent your car from having problems.

No matter how well you maintain your car, you must not forget the other element that keeps you car moving or "alive" in literal sense: electricity. While providing the power that enables the functions of the car (lighting, air conditioner and others), the car battery is instrumental in starting your car engine. Without it, you can forget about pumping fuel into your car in the first place. As a powerful component that keeps the car working, you must not neglect your car battery. (Pro tip: Just be on your guard and look for any sign of delay when starting your car engine and if there is a delay, you know what to do - just change your car battery as soon as possible!)

If you are unable to start your car due to your battery, a pair of jumper cables will be really handy in this kind of situation and you also need a friend or a nice stranger with a car to boost or jump start your battery temporarily. Pretty easy, huh? That was the old way. Now, it is the time for you to invest into something that you can readily use for these emergency situations: a portable jump starter battery. When the same thing happen again, you just need to use it to jump start your car battery with it. It is as simple as that.

However, you can also get a portable car battery charger which is useful to recharge your car if you suspect that it will be dead soon. With proper cable, you can just recharge your car battery like how you recharge your smartphone. Simple yet convenient in getting back to the road.

Automotive: Motorcycles - Riding With Passion

Whether you are a passionate ride or just a solo rider, the motorcycle definitely evokes the romantic image of roaming across the plains and fields while enjoying the beauty of nature at the same time. Like any other mechanical beast, you still need to maintain these mean machines. Aside from checking your motorcycle battery and keep an eye on its usability, you can also invest in good old solid helmet that not just protect your head but also offers better protection from dust and debris as well. For extra protection, you should check out great motorcycle jackets that are both stylish and durable to maximize your comfort while riding your motorcycle.

Experience & Embrace The Simplicity Of Getting Around
