Battery & Electrical
A car’s electrical system is three primary components; a battery, starter, and an alternator. All three of these elements need to work together to start and run your car. Weakness in any of these components means you may not be able to start your engine. Your battery provides all electrical power for your car before you start the vehicle, like the interior lights, dashboard indicators, and your radio. It also powers the ignition, fuel systems and any of your vehicle’s onboard computer systems. The starter turns the engine over. The alternator works with the battery and voltage regulator to keep electrical components running and the battery maintained.
