James D. Halderman is the author of a large number of books, mainly college-level textbooks featuring information on automotive systems and other engineering services. In the textbook Automotive Brake Systems, Halderman discusses the purpose, function, operation and diagnosis of automotive braking systems including ABS. Some of Halderman's other textbooks include: Automotive Chassis Systems, which covers all under-vehicle components, operations, diagnosis's, and services; Automotive Electrical and Electronics Systems, featuring numerous troubleshooting techniques that can be used in the classroom or for reference; and Engines--Theory and Servicing, a complete orientation to automotive engines and engine repair topics. Halderman earned his Bachelor of Science degree in education from Ohio Northern University in 1968, and has worked as Professor of Engineering Technologies at Sinclair Community College.
