Porsche 928 Electrics - When Available for Download:
This document covers the whole electrical system of the Porsche 928. It is intended for use in conjunction with legal copies of the Porsche 928 Factory Workshop Manuals including the wiring diagrams for your model year (these are not included).
See the full Introduction, Table of Contents, but if that's too much detail - Porsche 928 Electrics includes:
- Over 100 pages on the operation of every major 928 electrical system (inc. failure modes & debug)
- Over 115 pages covering 20 major 928 Electrical Projects with overviews & 20 more mini-projects
- Over 35 pages on Basic and Advanced electrical theory schematic components & Debug techniques
- Over 20 pages of 928 Specific Reference Documents (never before published).
- Over 22 pages of Index, Acronym, Table Of Contents, Figure & Table references
- Over 40 pages of useful project implementation techniques - including 928 specific techniques
- A concise 2 page key information reference card to print & keep in your 928
- Over 240 New Diagrams/Photographs, Over 60 New Data Tables
- Over 30 pages of Wiring Diagram Primer information
The introductory section of this document the Wiring Diagram Primer is available now as a free download for the benefit of all 928 owners. This is also a good example of the content & quality of the full document and is a useful independent document to help understand the Porsche wiring diagrams.
The complete 'Porsche 928 Electrics' document is available for licensed downloads with lifetime free updates (as available) and lifetime re-downloads for all original purchasers at a charge of $55 (US currency) payments by PayPal only
Why $55? Some will consider this expensive yet I consider it a bargain... how come?
Some will say they can get 3 CD's worth of Porsche 928 material from other sources for less money...?
True - but such information is a collection of previously published materials (and incidentally now also includes my free Wiring Diagram Primer document too). I think those materials are very good and very useful and I reference some of them for additional information - you should certainly consider buying them - but 'Porsche 928 Electrics' is quite different in concept and execution... how? here are 10 ways:
Consider - how much can having the right information save you? how many electrical parts on a 928 are priced less than $55? Regardless if you damage a part or end up purchasing and installing a part you didn't really need... the charges rack up pretty quickly. Alternatively what is the value of knowing how to repair your car or enhance its safety/convenience features - how much would you have to pay a supposed 'professional' to do this... and can you trust them to really understand a 928 and to do it right...?
But wait there's more... (as a Ronco commercial would say...)
By paying to purchase a license to these materials you are encouraging me to continue this development...
I have already spent well over 1000 hours in developing the materials to this point - as well as much more time implementing many of the projects in the appendix, many of which I developed and implemented for the first time on 928. All this work is time consuming and requires a high level of technical expertise in electrical & electronic engineering, technical 'detective' work, electronic publishing/web-design/maintenance, technical writing and fabrication/implementation techniques for these projects. It simply isn't practical for anyone to spend this much time and effort without compensation.
Comparing this to my day job - its not a really financially worthwhile redirection of my time... Even at $55 each I have no expectations I will sell anything close to enough to make this pay as well as my day job would for the considerable number of hours invested.
So despite charging for these materials this will still only be a money losing hobby for me... just not quite as bad as it might otherwise be!
I've also worked with a few others to bring their material to you on project implementation and on major systems operation where their work, knowledge or implementations extend beyond my own - my thanks to them - see the attributions in the document. I'd like to encourage others to continue to contribute materials, ideas and projects to this endeavor*.
