Self Study Program 517 – The Golf 2013 Electrical System

Self Study Program 517 – The Golf 2013 Electrical System PDF. The seventh generation of the Golf, which is famous for having made this vehicle’s name synonymous with all A-class vehicles, is once again proof that technical feasibility can, and needs to be, subject to ongoing reexamination.

Why should sophisticated driver assist systems, which make driving a vehicle such a pleasure,  be reserved for larger vehicle classes only? Employing the modular transverse matrix MQB allows a high level of variability with regards to the combination of vehicle technology to be achieved, regardless of the vehicle class. This also applies for the vehicle electrical system, whose characteristics and significance within the MQB are explained in this Self-study Programme, with the new Golf 2013 serving as an example for all models.

Due to the innumerable innovations being introduced with the Golf 2013, the electrical and electronic features are explained in several separate Self-study Programmes, making the information clearer for you.

These are the Self-study Programmes:

No. 516 “The Golf 2013 Driver Assist Systems”
No. 517 “The Golf 2013 Electrical System” (this book)
No. 518 “The Golf 2013 Infotainment – Part I”
