The Global Automotive Industry (Automotive Series)
₱ 6,927.00
Galleon

The automotive industry is still one of the world's largest manufacturing sectors, but it suffers from being very technology-focused as well as being relatively short-term focused. There is little emphasis within the industry and its consultancy and analyst supply network on the broader social and economic impacts of automobility and of the sector that provides it. The Global Automotive Industry addresses this need and is a first port of call for any academic, official or consultant wanting an overview of the state of the industry. An international team of specialist researchers, both from academia and business, review and analyse the key issues that make vehicle manufacturing still the world’s premier manufacturing sector, closely tied in with the fortunes of both established and newly emerging economies. In doing so, it covers issues related to manufacturing, both established practices as well as new developments; issues relating to distribution, marketing and retail, vehicle technologies and regulatory trends; and, crucially, labour practices and the people who build cars. In all this it explains both how the current situation arose and also likely future trajectories both in terms of social and regulatory trends, as the technological, marketing and labour practice responses to those, leading in many cases to the development of new business models. Key features Provides a global overview of the automotive industry, covering its current state and considering future challenges Contains contributions from international specialists in the automotive sector Presents current research and sets this in an historical and broader industry context Covers threats to the industry, including globalization, economic and environmental sustainability The Global Automotive Industry is a must-have reference for researchers and practitioners in the automotive industry and is an excellent source of information for business schools, governments, and graduate and undergraduate students in automotive engineering.

/Lexus Automotive SRS/Air-Bag Repair Manual: Automotive SRS/Airbag Series
₱ 2,467.00
Galleon

Toyota/Lexus Automotive SRS/Air-Bag Repair Manual A reference and pictorial guide for automotive SRS/Air-Bag Systems (Including all major Toyota and Lexus Model SRS systems) By MANDY CONCEPCION This book came out of an extensive research conducted during the development of the software product by the same name. Modern supplemental restraint systems are a wonder of technology. They are in reality pyrotechnic devices in charge of your safety. They are also difficult to diagnose and repair due to their safety issues. You simply can't employ normal diagnostic and repair procedures when dealing with these systems. It is just very dangerous to do a simply resistance test, for example, using a multi-meter. The actual minute current outputted by the multi-meter is enough to possibly trigger the air bag in your face and case body damage. For reason, SRS/Air-Bag systems require technical know-how and common sense. This book is meant to acquaint you with the general characteristics of modern air bag systems according to year, make and model. You will gain knowledge of SRS/Air-Bag operation in here, but this is not mainly a book on this system's principle of operation. The present book is a customized make and model SRS repair manual. Finally one specific value of this book is the availability of air-bag module resistance values. A huge part of air-bag repair is based on removing the steering wheel or passenger air bag, connecting a special resistor as a substitute and determining that the SRS light on the dash goes out. This can only happens if the right resistor is used, hence the value of this information. Further uses for this book is accessing the SRS computer to retrieve codes without a scan tool. Most SRS systems are NOT SCAN TOOL CAPABLE, but you do need to know the specific procedure to access these SRS codes as shown here. So, without further ado, enjoy… Table of Contents * System Operation * How to Access codes * Code Access without a scan tool * SRS Repair codes * Component Location * SRS Light * Front Air-Bags * Side Air-Bags * Seat Belt Tensioner * Secondary Air Inflator * Side Impact Crash Sensor * Front Impact Crash Sensor * Seat Belt Switch * Occupancy Sensor

You will appreciate the value of maintaining your car when you suddenly found your car stops moving. In your hindsight, you will think it is definitely costs less in maintaining your car than having to fix it when it is having a problem. Hence, do not turn a blind eye to maintaining your car properly as you can prevent your car from having problems.

No matter how well you maintain your car, you must not forget the other element that keeps you car moving or "alive" in literal sense: electricity. While providing the power that enables the functions of the car (lighting, air conditioner and others), the car battery is instrumental in starting your car engine. Without it, you can forget about pumping fuel into your car in the first place. As a powerful component that keeps the car working, you must not neglect your car battery. (Pro tip: Just be on your guard and look for any sign of delay when starting your car engine and if there is a delay, you know what to do - just change your car battery as soon as possible!)

If you are unable to start your car due to your battery, a pair of jumper cables will be really handy in this kind of situation and you also need a friend or a nice stranger with a car to boost or jump start your battery temporarily. Pretty easy, huh? That was the old way. Now, it is the time for you to invest into something that you can readily use for these emergency situations: a portable jump starter battery. When the same thing happen again, you just need to use it to jump start your car battery with it. It is as simple as that.

However, you can also get a portable car battery charger which is useful to recharge your car if you suspect that it will be dead soon. With proper cable, you can just recharge your car battery like how you recharge your smartphone. Simple yet convenient in getting back to the road.
