Your car’s electrical system powers everything from the ignition and fuel systems to accessories such as your radio, headlights, and wipers. The electrical system is, in turn, powered by the engine as you drive.
Here are the three key components of your vehicle’s auto electrical system:
⇒ Car Battery
When your car’s engine is off, the battery provides the required power to the rest of the system, as well as during start-up (cranking). It also supplements the power from the charging system during periods of high demand.
⇒ Charging System
This is the heart of the electrical system. It consists of three main components:
- Belt-driven alternator
- Various electrical circuits
- Voltage regulator
The alternator supplies power to the electrical system and then recharges the battery after your car has started while you are driving. Just like it sounds, the voltage regulator controls the voltage, keeping it within the operating range for your particular vehicle’s auto electrical system.
⇒ Starting System
Last to discuss, your vehicle’s starting system. Of course, this consumes more auto electrical power than any other in your car, truck, SUV, or minivan.
This specific auto electrical process consists of three main components that work in tandem:
- Ignition switch
- Starter relay or solenoid
- Starter motor.
In brief, the ignition switch controls the starter solenoid, which activates the starter motor. The starter motor then turns the engine until your car starts.
Common Auto Electrical System Problems:
- Dead Car Battery
