Diagnosis and Troubleshooting of Automotive Electrical, Electronic, and Computer Systems, Fifth Edition By James D. Halderman © 2010 Pearson Higher Education, Inc. Pearson Prentice Hall - Upper Saddle River, NJ 07458 SERIES-PARALLEL CIRCUITS Series-parallel circuits are a combination of series and parallel segments in one complex circuit. A series-parallel circuit includes both parallel loads or resistances, plus additional loads or resistances that are electrically connected in series.

Diagnosis and Troubleshooting of Automotive Electrical, Electronic, and Computer Systems, Fifth Edition By James D. Halderman © 2010 Pearson Higher Education, Inc. Pearson Prentice Hall - Upper Saddle River, NJ 07458 SUMMARY 1.A series-parallel circuit is called a compound circuit or a combination circuit. 2.A series-parallel circuit is a combination of a series and a parallel circuit, which does not include fuses or switches. 3.A fault in a series portion of the circuit would affect the operation if the series part was in the power or the ground side of the parallel portion of the circuit. 4.A fault in one leg of a series-parallel circuit will affect just the component(s) in that one leg.
