Your vehicle relies on an electrical system to power up different functions. Your battery, alternator, and starter ensure that vital components of your vehicle are in good working order and keep you safe on the road. Before you start your vehicle, the battery provides the car’s entire electrical current. The battery supplies a small amount of power to the starter motor, which rotates your vehicle’s flywheel which turns the crankshaft and begins the movement of the engine’s pistons. While your vehicle is running, the alternator provides power to the battery and keeps your car’s electrical system going. As you can see, your vehicle’s electrical system is very important and if you see any signs of it malfunctioning, do not hesitate to bring it to Old Ox Tire and Auto in Sterling for an inspection.
