Textbook Problem

Which of the following would not cause excessive current draw by the starter motor?

  1. A short in the motor

  • High resistance in the armature
  • Using oil that is too heavy in the engine
  • Very cold weather
  • To determine

    The option which does not indicate the reason of excessive current draw from the starter motor.

    Explanation

    The starter motor draws a great amount of current to crank the engine. Approximately, 250 or more amperes of current are drawn by the motor from the battery. The flow of this current is controlled by the drive using the ignition switch placed in the driver’s compartment. Thus, there are many conditions in which the amount of current may vary. Sometimes the motor draws less current, while in many cases it draws high current to run in the starting system circuit...
