    Most of the cars available where I am, have computers in them. There are inexpensive diagnostic hand-held
    units readily available to help with this. ARE, you asking about these types of electronic diagnostics, or are you asking about troubleshooting electrical systems in automobiles without the standard diagnostic hand-helds that I see here?
    Are the vehicles in your area equipped with these new computer systems?

    Do you have access to any of the many hand-held diagnostic instruments available?
    They do a good job of getting you in the ball park with whatever the automobile problem is.
    They plug into the car's computer and list possible problems detected with the auto.
    That narrows the list of things you need to check to fix the car.
    Do you have access to Google, Amazon, or any other sites that would sell what you need?

    To diagnose anything one first needs to know how it works, so I'd suggest you start there.
