The additional resistance must be compensated for with a larger conductor. Greater current or additional length will require larger conductors. Do not forget this when you repair a circuit. Always use an adequate-size wire for the current and the length of the circuit, with adequate insulation for the voltage. Remember, it is the job of the insulation to ensure that the current gets to where it is supposed to go. Without insulation, current would take the path of least resistance back to the battery, bypassing, or shorting, around the bulb or motor.

The DSO can be set up to look at voltage changes or current changes with the addition of a current probe. Again, as a comparison, the relatively new DSO replaced the larger ignition scope in many service centers. The advantages to the battery-powered or vehicle-powered DSO over the massive analyzer that needs to be plugged into the wall are many. Many of the newer DSOs are also software-driven, which makes updating as easy as plugging the unit into a computer and loading the latest changes found on a CD.

Specification values to compare against the actual are also necessary. One last item designed to simplify the technician’s procedure is the technical service bulletin (TSB). An example of a TSB is shown in Figure 2-4. It is through the TSB that technicians find out if more vehicles than just the one they are working on have the same problem. The amount of time that a TSB can save a technician is tremendous. There is no sense in reinventing the wheel when the manufacturer, realizing that all of a certain category of vehicles has the potential for a similar problem, makes that information available.
