The electrical system in your vehicle is like the nervous system in your body...sensors generate impulses that are distributed, then processed, and those processed impulses are sent to some other area to display information, actuate another sensor or mechanical device, or provide power for device operation.
Electrical starting systems
In the early days of the automobile, the only electrical system was to allow the engine to operate. Later, lighting was added, and the more expensive cars received electrical starting systems.
Today, electrical systems are extremely complex and interface with every other system in the vehicle. There are several computers, many different types of displays, interior and exterior lighting, engine and transmission management...even steering is controlled electrically in most new cars. So, it’s critical that your electrical system be in perfect operating condition at all times.
The list is too long to put here, but some of the major electrical components are: battery, battery cables, alternator, voltage regulator, ECM or PCM, CCM, Climate Control, Anti-lock Brake Controller, Airbag computer and actuators, Entertainment systems, GPS, OnStar, switches, sensors, window actuators and all wiring.
