This book is part of the Pearson Automotive Professional Technician Series, which provides full-color, media-integrated solutions for today’s students and instructors covering all eight areas of ASE certification, plus additional titles covering common courses. Peer reviewed for technical accuracy, the series and the books in it represent the future of automotive textbooks.
This title is designed to be a one-semester text and covers the fundamental ASE/NATEF designated topic of Automotive Brake Systems (A5), as well as the advanced brake system topics taught in all schools and colleges.
Prepare tomorrow’s automotive professionals for success.
Automotive Brake Systems, 7/e covers every electrical and electronic brake component found on vehicles today, as well as the practical skills that students must master to be successful in the industry. Written by a service technician and an automotive instructor—not a technical writer—and fully up to date with the latest electrical and electronic brake systems devices and systems used since 2005, the text is revered as the best available text on the subject. Formatted to appeal to today's technical trade students, Halderman’s text uses helpful tips and visuals to bring concepts to life and guide students through the procedures they'll use on the job.
To keep your course current, all of the content is correlated to the latest NATEF tasks and ASE areas for Automotive Brake Systems (A5), and new or updated information is included on such topics as brake friction materials, qualifying a brake lathe, the GM regular production code (RPO), ceramic brake pads and environmental concerns of copper in brake friction material, the BCM control of the red brake warning light, and brake line corrosion reduction coating.
