Start and batteries

Startup, charging and battery instructions

The start and load system of your vehicle is involved in the regulation of multiple electrical processes to start the engine of your vehicle and keep it running.

The starting system consists of the battery, a starter motor, and a starter solenoid to power the engine., while the charging system consists of an alternator and a voltage regulator. The charging system is responsible for routing the energy throughout the entire electrical process while maintaining the battery charge.

Benefits of starting, charging and batteries

Slow starters and low-level headlights can sometimes indicate a problem with your vehicle’s starting and charging system. Since the battery for the electrical charge is needed to start the rest of the electrical system, a weak or exhausted battery can also prevent your car from starting. If a quick start refuses to revive the battery and the startup system, our employees may need to look more closely at the other components of the startup and charging system to determine if you need a starter replacement or an alternator.

All components within the start and load system of your vehicle are necessary to ensure proper operation, and a bad link between them can render the entire electrical process useless. If you have trouble starting your vehicle or maintaining its power even after attempting a quick start, then allow our service personnel to perform a verification of the starting and loading system in your vehicle today.
