Starting and Charging
Your vehicle’s starting and charging system is involved in regulating multiple electrical processes to start your vehicle’s engine and keep it running.
The starting system consists of the battery, a starter motor, and a starter solenoid responsible for starting the engine, while the charging system consists of an alternator and voltage regulator.
The charging system is responsible for routing energy throughout the entire electrical process, while sustaining the battery’s charge.
This process begins when you turn on the ignition. Then, the electrical system sends power from the battery, to the starter solenoid, to the starter motor. The starter motor turns the engine in order to begin the internal combustion process. The alternator powers the other electrical components in your vehicle while, the regulator controls the voltage supplied to each component. The regulator ensures that the alternator maintains the battery’s charge, so that the entire cycle can continue.
