BATTERY, STARTING & CHARGING SYSTEM
The alternator and voltage regulator provide power to the vehicle while the engine is running and maintains the battery's charge. The voltage regulator monitors the battery's state of charge and directs the alternator to recharge the battery as necessary.
- Battery: Batteries are manufactured to last anywhere from two to five years, but exposure to heat, vibration and malfunctioning components of your vehicle's electrical system can shorten its useful life
- Starting System: An electric starter motor and a starter solenoid make up your vehicle's starting system. The starter solenoid is the electrical switch, activated by the ignition system when you turn the key, which engages the starter motor. The starter motor spins the engine a few times so the internal combustion process can begin.
- Charging System: Your vehicle's charging system consists of three primary components: the battery, the alternator and the voltage regulator. The battery supplies electrical power for your vehicle while starting and during periods of high electrical loads. It also acts as a shock absorber for the electrical system by smoothing out any voltage spikes before they get to the computer.
