A compound wound starter motor has a(n):
Starter solenoids are wound with a winding having a higher current flow called:
The solenoid winding that is responsible for moving the starter drive into mesh with the ring gear is the:
The overrunning clutch accomplishes which of the following?
Starter armatures are checked for short circuits using:
Failure of the starter to operate, combined with a high current draw could result from:
Efficient starter operation is most dependant upon:
A starter with a very low current draw, fails to operate, or have sufficient power, could be the result of:
When starting a vehicle, the starter spins over freely but the engine does not rotate. The problem is likely with the:
More current can pass through a set of series wound field coils than through a set of parallel wound field coils.
In all starting motors the adjacent pole shoes are of opposite polarity, providing a north, south, north, south sequence around the frame.
A technician converts a truck from a 24 volt starting system to a 12 volt starting system. To ensure the starter functions properly in adverse conditions he would also have to:
The purpose for a magnetic switch in a starting system is to:
When a heavy copper band or wire is wrapped around the pole pieces in a starter, this coil is known as a:
To constantly reverse the direction of current flow in the starter armature the current passes through the brushes into the:
When an armature is tested on a growler and the metal strip or hacksaw blade vibrates over a winding, that winding is:
A starter solenoid that has "an open" in the pull in windings will do which of the following when activated from the start switch?
While the starter is cranking, the pull in solenoid windings:
A customer has his vehicle towed into your shop, with the complaint that the vehicle will not start. After checking the batteries and doing a visual inspection (which are both OK) you attempt to start the vehicle, you turn the key switch but no noise is heard from the starter or the solenoid. What should you check first?
What safety precaution (s) should be taken when troubleshooting starter control and motor circuits?
What might cause thrown armature windings (windings of the armature that have come out of their normal position and are rubbing on the pole shoes)?
When testing an armature, using an ohmmeter, the DMMeter reads "O.L." when one lead is touched to the armature shaft and the other lead is touched to the commulator. Is this normal for a good armature?
A burnt commulator bar would be an indication that the armature has a (n):
When testing a disassembled starter, when one DMM lead is connected to the motor terminal field windings and the other lead is connected to the starter frame (housing), you find the ohmmeter reads "0" or "continuity" . This would be an indication that the field windings are:
When testing a disassembled starter, when one lead is connected to the motor terminal field windings and the other lead is connected to the starter frame(housing), an ohmmeter reads "O.L." This would be an indication that the field windings are:
When testing disassembled starter, when one lead is connected to the motor terminal and the other lead is connected to the insulated brush terminal, you find that the ohmmeter reads "0" or "continuity". This would be an indication that the field windings are:
In a starter with parallel wound field windings, can you use an ohmmeter to test for open filed windings without disconnecting each of the windings from the motor terminal?
By alternately placing a steel bar next to each pole shoe in parallel wound field coil starter and running 60 to 70 amps through the field coils you are testing for:
A starter has a low free speed and high current draw when no-load tested. Which of these is the LEAST likely cause of such symptoms?
A starter control circuit test may uncover which of the following conditions?
All of the following may be symptoms of a faulty starter EXCEPT:
The cranking current test measures:
Technician A says that a starting and charging system tester (AVR) can be used to test free spinning current draw bench tests. Technician B says that free spinning current draw bench tests must be performed with the starter solenoid removed. Who is right?
Technician A says that if the ring gear on the flywheel is damaged, the starter drive must be replaced. Technician B says if the ring gear is damaged, the ring gear should be replaced. Who is right?
