Vince Fischelli founded Veejer Enterprises
in 1985. He is a Technical Training Consultant specializing in
vehicle electrical and electronics troubleshooting training
for all segments of the vehicle service industry (autos, trucks
and heavy equipment). He is a graduate of seven electronics schools,
graduating from his first electronics school in 1959 as a U.S
Marine attending the U.S. Navy's Electronics "A" School
at Great Lakes, IL. His military career spanned 12 years during
which he completed several advanced electronics schools and worked
on the military's most advanced electronics systems. He entered
civilian life in late 1967 and began working in the automotive
repair industry at an automotive electronic service center in
Dallas, Texas where his electronics background was applied to solving
automotive electrical problems that stumped dealership technicians.
He later operated his own repair shop from 1975 to 1980 where
he began training service technicians he hired to perform the
high caliber of electrical work he brought in to the shop. Vince
is a natural born teacher and trainer and was often called on
in the military to conduct electronic classes. It was a natural
thing for him to train the technicians he hired to work in his
own shop. His training methods were so successful that several
of his top techs he trained eventually left his company to become
lead electrical specialists for other shops of the local competition
who made his highly trained employee technicians financial packages
they couldn't refuse. After losing several technicians to other
shops he decided to close his company in 1980 and go back into
the electronics industry.
Six months later he was offered
a job at, and eventually became the technical manager of GM's
ECM remanufacturing facility in Dallas for nearly 5 years and
later set up GM's digital dash remanufacturing facility in Dallas.
In this capacity he noticed an increasing lack of proper electrical-electronics
troubleshooting training for automotive technicians was hampering
their ability to perform proper automotive computer control system
diagnosis and to correct driveability problems without changing
a lot of unnecessary parts. Most technicians he noted where just
parts changers. Repair costs were excessive and customer comebacks
where a major problem for dealerships. He was asked to provide
some training in the Dallas area for dealership technicians which
He decided to start Veejer Enterprises
in 1985 to provide the level of electrical-electronics troubleshooting
training needed in the vehicle service industry. He originally
trained at the dealership level as a private trainer but later
began to move throughout the automotive service industry, truck
service industry and heavy equipment service industry as he became
known. He is the author of more than 16 books, numerous magazine
technical articles and technical papers on vehicle electrical
and vehicle electronics troubleshooting.
He developed electrical-electronics troubleshooting workshops.
These workshops cover vehicle electrical and electronics troubleshooting for
journeyman through the advanced level. There are three workshops to be studied in numerical order, 1-2-3.
In these workshops automotive, truck and heavy equipment service technicians as well as
auto and diesel technology instructors learn how to troubleshoot vehicle electrical
and electronic systems. He has conducted over 600 seminars and
workshops since 1985, including many in-house custom designed
vehicle electrical/electronics training programs for vehicle
manufacturers, suppliers to vehicle manufacturers and various
fleet organizations in both government and the private sector.
He developed a 60 lesson home-study
vehicle electronics training course called, "The"
Vehicle Electronics Training Course, a training program in vehicle electronics troubleshooting
technique. The course is unique in that it teaches vehicle service
technicians how to troubleshoot vehicle electrical and electronic
systems. Lessons are available in printed booklets or on CDROM.
designed a hands-on troubleshooting training program called "The"
Hands-On Home-Study Troubleshooting Training Program where students perform live electrical-electronics
system troubleshooting training at home or in the shop using
his four specially designed Troubleshooting Trainer Kits:
(1) The Starter
(2) Troubleshooting DC Motor Circuits,
(3) Troubleshooting Relay Circuits and
(4) Wire Harness Troubleshooting.

Vince's latest vehicle electrical
book "Vehicle Electrical Troubleshooting
shows service technicians how to troubleshoot battery problems
on-the-vehicle using only a DMM and a DC Current Clamp.
Sections cover troubleshooting cranking problems on-the-vehicle
and charging systems on-the-vehicle with just a DMM &
DC Current Clamp. Those generators (alternators) controlled by
an on-board computer are also explained and how to tell if the
generator or the on-board computer is the problem. These electrical
troubleshooting methods save technicians enormous time, pinpoint
what is actually wrong in the circuit and will eliminate mis-diagnosis.
Other sections of the fully illustrated 250 page book cover electrical
essentials, what you need to know about your DMM and DC current
clamp, how circuits work and how to read schematic diagrams.
In the past Vince developed the
original Automotive and Truck/Heavy Duty Electrical Clinic Training
Programs for INTERSTATE BATTERY SYSTEM OF AMERICA.
He was the Electronics Editor
of the former IMPORT SERVICE MAGAZINE for seven years.
He has written and produced numerous
video training tapes on electronics for a number of vehicle manufacturers,
including CADILLAC MOTOR DIVISION, INTERSTATE BATTERIES and CHAMPION
He is a featured speaker at industry
trade shows and conventions presenting electrical-electronics
troubleshooting training seminars for all segments of the vehicle
service industry. Vince can be contacted at the location below.
Christian Men's Ministry
Vince has started a new ministry in 2013. He wrote a book for men (and women too) entitled: "Marines for JESUS," a Guidebook for a closer walk with Jesus, over 300 pages. It was introduced in July, 2013.
He writes about some of his experiences and what he learned serving in the U.S. Marines and draws some parallels between being a Christian and having been a Marine. It has helped him become what Vince likes to call "a Marine for JESUS."
You can also read about the "Meaning of Life." It will explain why we are here and what is the meaning of all this we call life on earth.
