FIRST THINGS FIRSTTM guides an auto or truck service technician through
simple yet effective voltage tests that pinpoint problems in
a vehicle's primary electrical system that many technicians often
misdiagnose or worse simply overlook.
Technicians using FIRST THINGS FIRSTTM report that 75% of a vehicle's electrical problems,
as well as, 35-40% of no- code driveability problems are quickly
found using FIRST THINGS FIRSTTM yet these service technicians previously have
had little training in testing auto/truck electrical systems
with a DMM. FIRST THINGS FIRSTTM shows you how to do it step-by-step.
Stop wasting time changing electrical parts to see if it fixes
an electrical problem. With FIRST THINGS FIRSTTM you can identify electrical problems using only
a DMM before you change expensive electrical parts that do not
fix the vehicle's electrical problem.
FIRST THINGS FIRSTTM verifies that the vehicle's battery, primary ground
circuits, cranking and charging system are functioning properly.
This is where most of a vehicle's electrical problems occur.
Each of the 14 steps in FIRST THINGS FIRSTTM follows a logical 14 step testing sequence which
is thoroughly explained and illustrated on individual pages.
Flip through the pages to follow the tests in numerical order.
Most test steps offer suggestions on what to check if a DMM reading
on any test step is incorrect. FIRST THINGS FIRSTTM is printed on 8.5x11 inch laminated cardboard
pages so they will survive heavy shop use. Pages wipe clean with
a damp cloth.
RESULTS FORM is included on the last
page of FIRST THINGS FIRSTTM which can be copied to give the customer a copy
of the test results. Paste your business card in the box at the
bottom of the TEST RESULTS FORM and make copies of the Test Results
Form to give a copy to your customer to shows the bad readings
and the corrected readings after your electrical repairs. Customers
appreciate knowing exactly what they are paying for. Most shops
charge a fee to perform FIRST
and promote it as a valuable added benefit to their repair services.
This will help you to generate additional repair income from
electrical problems found that you previously might have missed.
