The alternator generates most of the electricity in your vehicle. It transforms mechanical energy into electrical energy and sends power to essential parts of your car, like the headlights, engine fan, ignition coils and various parts of the fuel injection system. It also powers non-essential yet very important parts like the radio and air conditioning system.

The starter does the opposite of the alternator. It changes electrical energy into mechanical energy and uses the electricity from the battery to start the crankshaft turn. That’s what gets your car going.
