Hi Vince, I have been studying your electrics books and putting into practice at the workshop what I’ve learned from these I must admit wish I had this info years ago.
The Story: one of my colleagues checked a BMW 1 series for a no crank non start . . . he reported it required a starter motor because it sounded it was faulty . . . . a new starter was fitted and guess what, CLICK no crank and there was smoke coming from the starter area . . . I went over to the vehicle (to help) he said the new starter is faulty it’s burning up . . . I asked him to check the earth on the vehicle and he pointed to a jump lead he was using . . . I said you need to check from the battery at the battery to the engine block he said I can’t do that the battery is in the boot . . . I said it doesn’t matter where the battery is you must check from there, needless to say it was not checked and he removed the new starter and ordered another one . . . today another new starter (the second starter) was fitted and you know what the outcome was, yes click and smoke . . .
I did the tests from FIRST THINGS FIRST-Pro and found the engine block (voltage drop) was reading 10.5 volts . . . the earth cable was hanging together with dry corrosion when touched it came apart . . . and to top it all I found that the foreman also previously fitted a new battery too.
Thanks for your books I have learned from them in these situations. It gets frustrating when people just throw parts on, thanks to your books. I thoroughly carry out FIRST THINGS FIRST-Pro checks and it does help massively once you understand all the tests,

I bought a book vehicle electrical troubleshooting SHORTCUTS from you two years ago. I must admit it really help me troubleshoot most of my electrical problems.

Hello sir, My name is Charles Perkins we talked last year for a while and I must say now after reading you instruction on the 60 lessons, SHORTCUTS and doing the practical lamp trainer and using my flip chart I am the go to guy in my shop.
I work for the military contract side dyncorp international. Thanks for all the help and instruction. Even though my peers see me as the go to guy I still need to learn more. I'm about to re-read the 60 lessons and take notes again. I also left a comment below referencing your school of instruction just so young techs can get a chance at real troubleshooting!

Vince, They were talking about things you were Thankful For this year. Well one thing I am thankful for is you and your electrical training.
Every tech working in the automotive field needs your training. As I have said many times, I wish in 1975 I would have had your training.
That would have made my electrical diagnosis a less stressful part of my career.
Vince, I appreciate all your training courses you provide. I appreciate everything you have done for me over the years. You are an excellent instructor, and a man of integrity.
Thank you and Happy New Year
