A simple battery test can tell you a lot more! In fact, it may not be the fault of the battery! Did you know that a bad alternator that’s not properly charging your car battery could cause this problem?
That’s why we always do an alternator test to be sure that the alternator is putting out enough power to keep your battery charged.
Your car battery is just one part of the system that starts your car. Here’s the details you need to know.
Your Car Battery:
Your car battery provides power in three different ways. Your car battery will provide power at start up – often called startup cranking. The battery provides power directly to the starter.
Your battery provides required power to maintain the operation of accessories when the car engine is turned off.
The battery also supplements the power from the charging system during periods of high demand – like when you’re stuck in traffic with your headlights, wipers and blower motor all running!
Your car’s charging system is made up of three main components. They are the belt driven alternator, various electrical circuits and a voltage regulator
When your car is running, the alternator provides power to the electrical system. It also keeps the car battery recharged.
The voltage regulator controls the voltage, keeping it within the proper operating range of your car’s entire electrical system.
The starting system on your car includes the ignition switch, the starter relay or solenoid and the starter motor. These three components of the starting system consume more electrical power than any other system on your car.
In short, the ignition switch controls the starter solenoid. That activates the starter motor. Drawing on your car battery, the starter motor turns the engine over or cranks it until your car starts.
But your car battery is still the heart of your electrical and starting system. Don’t be left stranded because your car won’t start!
