Batteries, Starting And Charging
SHOP Batteries, Starting And Charging WITH
Turning your keys in the ignition makes your starter draw current from your battery. This happens when the starter solenoid switch engages to form a complete circuit between the starter relay and the battery terminals. At this point the starter can manually engage the flywheel and start your engine. Current is also drawn from the battery to the spark plugs to start the cycle of combustion.
These actions combined with those of your vehicle's other electrical systems drain the battery over time. That's where the alternator comes in. The alternator generates alternating current to recharge the battery.
With so many moving parts, it's easy to see how starting problems can make for a headache. Because of this complex starting process, you should ensure all components are working their best to guarantee your vehicle fires up quickly every time you hop in the driver's seat.
