Self Test

This brief self-test will help you measure your understanding of The Starting System. The style is the same as that used for A.S.E. certification tests. The answers to this self test are shown on next page.

1. The starting system has two circuits. They are the:

A. motor circuit and ignition circuit

B. insulated circuit and power circuit

C. motor circuit and control circuit

D. ground circuit and control circuit

2. A basic starter control circuit energizes the magnetic switch through the ignition switch and the:

A. solenoid

B. neutral start switch

C. starter clutch

D. regulator

3. On a Toyota gear-reduction starter, the plunger in the magnetic switch:

A. pulls a drive lever to mesh the gears

B. pushes the pinion gear into mesh with the ring gear

C. is held in place by the pull-in coil

D. disengages the pinion gear from the starter armature

4. When an engine starts, the pinion gear is disconnected from the starter by the:

A. magnetic switch

B. plunger

C. over-running clutch

D. switch return spring

5. If the engine cranks too slow to start, the problem may be caused by:

6. If a starter motor spins but does not engage and crank the engine, the problem is most likely caused by a bad:

A. magnetic switch

B. over-running clutch

C. positive battery cable

D. ignition switch

7. When performing a starter current draw test, low current draw usually indicates:

A. high resistance

B. a bad starter

C. a discharged battery

D. a short in the starter

8. When performing a starter current draw test, high current draw usually indicates:

A. a discharged battery

B. high resistance

C. battery terminal corrosion

D. engine problems or a bad starter

9. A test of a starting system reveals that the voltage drop between the battery positive (+) post and the starter motor terminal "C" is about one volt. The most probable cause is:

A. low resistance in the motor circuit

B. high resistance in the motor circuit

C. low resistance in the control circuit

D. high resistance in the control circuit

10. The voltage drop on the ground side of the starter motor circuit should be no more than:

A. battery voltage

A. engine problems

B. a faulty neutral start switch

C. an open relay in the control circuit

D. a damaged pinion gear
