What Does the Electrical System Do?

The electrical system in your vehicle is all about powering everything that makes up your Toyota. It’s made up of 5 crucial pieces:

  • Alternator
  • Battery
  • Electronic Igniter
  • Spark Plugs
  • Starter

All of these parts work together to provide power to start your engine, and get the combustion system going so that you can get out on the road. It’s not only actually driving your vehicle that the electrical system powers, but many other tertiary components as well, like the computer system, audio system, wiper blade movement, headlights, rear lights and more.
