Car Troubleshooting in a Nutshell

Whenever you’re troubleshooting a car problem, it’s best to be methodical. You can analyze pretty much any problem with a good multimeter, though there are also a number of smartphone apps you might try as well.

And remember to be patient. Frustration is where you often make the most mistakes.
