My new used car would not start three times last week and it had to be towed. It’s currently getting a new starter. I have a relationship that appears to be in the same situation. It won’t start. Is it because we both have new vehicles?
What Is A Starter? The starter is a small motor, powered by the battery. It gets the engine of your car running. A starter relay sits between the battery and the starter motor, transmitting power. Without a properly working starter relay and motor, you won’t be able to start your vehicle and may need a tow.
Reminds me of Walk for the World yesterday when I was inside the cavity of my physical body. The engine? I looked around and felt different sensations in this contained space. I intended/sent white light to the parts of this vehicle.
A starter (also self-starter, cranking motor, or starter motor) is a device used to rotate (crank) an internal-combustion engine so as to initiate the engine’s operation under its own power. Starters can be electric, pneumatic, or hydraulic.
The starter system is an electrical circuit that is useful for starting or starting the vehicle engine. This system can convert electrical energy from the battery into mechanical energy. Furthermore, this mechanical energy will be used to rotate the engine so that the vehicle engine can run.
Starters are devices that control the use of electrical power to equipment. As the name implies, starters “start” motors. They can also stop, reverse, accelerate and protect them. Starters are made from two building blocks: contactors and overloads.
An overload is designed to protect the motor against a prolonged overcurrent. What this means is, if the motor is running at too high of a current for too long, it can overheat and destroy the motor. How the overload provides this protection is it has a current sensing unit built within the overload itself.
is an overload contact?
If the current rises above a certain limit over a certain period of time, then the overload relay will trip, operating an auxiliary contact which interrupts the motor control circuit, de-energizing the contactor. This leads to the removal of the power to the motor.
So, a contact is simply an electrically-controlled switch that completes or interrupts a circuit. A motor starter is a contactor with overload relays added to each circuit for overload protection.
An overload release coil can be seen in the starter of a motor. As the name suggests, it shuts down the machine when it seems to be operating at overload.
Now for any machine that takes electrical input, you might have noticed that we operate it at its fixed rated voltage. As the load increases on the shaft of the motor, the motor needs to give more output power to keep it running at the rated speed. Now by law of conservation of energy, as mechanical output power increases, the electrical input power will also increase.
That’s a lot of information that coils through my systems of consciousness.
This four day car ordeal was very stressful. I have yet to learn how to handle this kind of situation. It’s a different kind of storm, of tumbling. Thankfully people were available with rides (tows) and auto insurance and warranty covered expenses. Hopefully I’ll have my car back soon. Someone at the dealership told me they didn’t have cars to loan but I am now driving one thanks to a guy in the service department. This is the second time he’s rescued me. I love these karmic connections. People stepping forward to assist! I get to offer the same.
