We bet you don't think much about it until something stops functioning. Yup, we're talking about your car's electrical system. Do you know enough about the way it works to ace this quiz? We challenge you to answer every question correctly.
You know that your car has an electrical system, but do you really know what it does? The basics of the system are that your car's battery provides power to the starter. Then, while your car is running, the alternator gives the battery the juice it needs to keep the sparks flowing.
Eureka, so that's why my dad told me to drive my car around for a while to charge the battery after he had to jump it that time I left the interior lights on!
And, just like the electrical system in your house, your car's electrical system distributes that electrical juice to the parts and components that use electricity to work. If only one piece of the system fails along the route, you're in trouble, and you just might be sitting on the side of the road waiting for a tow truck.
So, do you know enough about your car's electrical system to pass this quiz? Let's find out.
