Overview

Get the resource no technician should be without! Now in its 8th edition, Computerized Engine Controls continues the tradition of its predecessors: strong, solid coverage of both domestic and import engine control systems, which provides readers with the foundational knowledge needed to diagnose and repair any electronic system on any vehicle. Thoroughly updated to offer insight into the latest technological advances found on today's roads and highways, the 8th Edition examines such cutting-edge topics as hybrid and fuel cell vehicles, GM's 42-volt system, hexadecimal conversion and OBD II, multiplexing, and more. This updated edition also includes new content that will help electrical concepts come alive and all-new coverage of logic gates, taking the magic and mystery out of the computer. For technicians who are interested in increasing their diagnostic effectiveness on today's vehicle electronic systems, this book is an absolute "must"!

Steve V. Hatch, Lincoln College of Technology, Denver

Steve V. Hatch is a professor at the Lincoln College of Technology (LCT), Denver Campus, formerly known as Denver Automotive and Diesel College (DADC). Active in the automotive field since 1972, he has worked as a technician in both aftermarket shops and dealerships. Professor Hatch began his teaching career in 1989, teaching evening classes while continuing to work as a drivability technician in a dealership. He began teaching full-time in August 1991 at DADC and has since worked as both an instructor and a curriculum developer for the college, as well as a training coordinator for Snap-on Technical Training. In 1994 he became part of Colorado’s Air Care retraining program, designed to increase professional technicians’ understanding of modern systems. Working in conjunction with Bridgestone, in 2002 Professor Hatch developed a national training program to increase the diagnostic effectiveness of lead technicians in stores throughout the U.S. These stores now include Firestone, Tires Plus, and Wheel Works. Professor Hatch is an ASE Master Certified Automotive Technician and is ASE L1 Certified, and he instructs both professional technicians and entry-level students on a continuing basis throughout the year.
