Most people have no idea of what is basically happening when one turns on the car's ignition. The automobile no longer has a jumble of wires but a highly sophisticated electrical system. The car requires electric power and it is provided by these small wires, which are only a part of a large system. This is a very complicated and highly advanced system. The car's electrical system is comprised of many elements just like the battery, starter, voltage regulator, alternator, fuse panel and solenoid.
The component that powers everything else in this system is the battery. All of the electrical needs are delivered by the battery, which has 120 volts of power. The alternator or generator constantly charges the battery. The battery is attached to the generator which inturn is attached to the engine by a belt that recharges the battery and helps keep the car running. Electricity that's stored in the battery is sent to the starter to ignite the engine. Since the battery saves all of the power created by the system, it is considered the soul of the electrical system of the automobile. All of this generated power is needed as a way for a car to move.
Electrical parts such as the car's stereo and clock receives their power from the battery when the engine is not turned on completely. The battery has six cells, and through insulators, they are split up by positive and negative plates. They are protected by a combination of water and sulfuric acid, which makes an electrolyte substance. The alternator also produces electricity that is used to run the ignition and engine controls. The engine drives the alternator using a belt drive, and this helps transform AC power to DC power. The starter uses by far the most power which is an essential component of any car.
The operation of combustion begins when the flywheel turns the crankshaft which, in turn, starts the car. The moment the combustion starts, the cylinders begin to start the compression procedure. The electric battery is required to transfer this power, but it is governed by the solenoid, and controlled by the ignition switch. The car starts up as soon as the switch is fired up inside the starter motor. All of the electrical instruments in the car are attached to the last piece of the electrical system, the fuse panel. The fuses are needed to protect your car from harm like fire, because of short circuits or overloads.
Due to this elementary understanding of your car's electrical system, you have an idea of how your car operates. You can make the best diagnosis of what ails your car using this knowledge. Using this as a starting point, you should try to find out more about how your car works.
