ACDC’s book “Understanding Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Service and Technology” is a best seller.  It has over 350 pages of hybrid and EV information that will help you safely get started in the hybrid / EV  service business.  Over 100 pictures and diagrams, and easy to understand text.  A hybrid newsletter is delivered 3 times a year via E-mail after you buy so you stay up to date.

So what is in this book? In the first sections you will find easy to understand chapters on the construction and function of all the hybrid parts that a 12 volt trained technician would nit be familiar with. Then after you have read the first 50 pages or so ACDC has put together over  the last last 10 years a chapter on each popular HEV/ PHEV and EV that is sold in North America plus the Auris HEV sold overseas. In a short time you can be familiar with every one that comes into your bay. At the back of the book is a real treasure chest of  tips, tricks, TSB information, charts and more top get help during a repair procedure, diagnostic job or preventive maintenace.  What this book is NOT is a substitute for information you would find on-line like AllData or Mitchell. Identifix is a customer of ACDC and we recommend them for tech support. ACDC does offer tech support through our QSP.
