Your vehicle’s electrical system powers everything from the ignition and fuel systems to accessories such as your stereo, headlamps, and windshield wipers. Your electrical system is, in turn, powered by the engine. Here are the three critical elements of the electrical system:

  • Battery

    When your vehicle’s engine is turned off, the battery gets the necessary power to the rest of the system, as well as during startup. It supplements the power from the charging system as well during periods of high demand.

  • Charging System

    This is the hub of the electrical system. It consists of three primary components: the belt-driven alternator, numerous electrical circuits, and a voltage regulator. As a provider of power to the electrical system, the alternator also recharges the battery after your vehicle has started up. Just like it sounds, the voltage regulator controls the voltage, keeping it within the operating range of the electrical system.

  • Starting System

    The starter system consumes more electrical power than any other in your vehicle. The starting system consists of three components that work in tandem:

    1. Ignition switch

    2. Starter relay or solenoid

    3. Starter motor

    The ignition controls the starter solenoid, which in turn triggers the starter motor. The starter motor then turns the engine until your vehicle starts up.
