How Does it Work?
- The starter is an electric motor that starts the engine by cranking it.
- It's powered by the vehicle's battery.
- To turn on the engine, the starter motor requires a high-electric current, which means the battery has to have sufficient power.
- In most vehicles, the ignition key powers the starter switch. Turning the key beyond the ignition position allows you to feel the current that is sent to the solenoid.
