Your car's electrical system powers everything from the ignition and fuel systems to accessories such as your radio, headlights and wipers. The electrical system is, in turn, powered by the engine. Here are the three key components of the electrical system:
When your car's engine is off, the battery provides the required power to the rest of the system, as well as during start-up (cranking).
This is the heart of the electrical system. The alternator supplies power to the electrical system and recharges the battery after your car has started. Most modern vehicles voltage regulators are done internally in the PCM or ECM.
This system consumes more electrical power than any thing else in your car. The starting system consists of three components which work in tandem: the ignition switch, the starter relay or solenoid, and the starter motor. The ignition switch controls the starter solenoid, which activates the starter motor. The starter motor then turns the engine until your car starts.
