If you are looking for a vehicle anatomy guide, the best one that I have found is the Moditech Crash Recovery System. Very comprehensive - covers all European and North American vehicles with at least 1 airbag in the vehicle. The nice parts of this program are that A) it is regularly updated (monthly, I think), and B) it is available in an on-line/internet version. More information can be found at or

A little more info is available for free from state farms web site. You can order dvd's for free. I'm a Chrysler master tech for my side job, so it's not too in depth for me, but a lot of our guys found it informative.

Mp3 players, cell phone chargers etc, won't do much for the electric motor of a hybrid. There are studies which indicate those electronic devices might cause activation of un-deployed SRS systems. Most manufacturers say no, but as a general rule, we remove and isolate the ignition key and any device which might be charging.

When you are talking about cable color, high voltage cables are Orange for electric hybrids, an Industry standard. Hydrogen fuel hybrids are using blue hoses from the fuel cell to the engine.

Here is a site with good information. Todd Hoffman puts on a very informative class on not only hybrids, but supplemental restraints.

There have been a string of accidents involving the new smart car down here, but not alot of info on this model. The cage sits very close to the pt, i'd appreciate any info or personel experience removing victims or unknown hazards. All my incidents have resulted in ejection, i dont have extrication time on this model.
