Shut off equipment, then car or truck?

Julia M. Tyson

Dear Car or truck Chat: When I was learning how to drive back in the 1970s, I was instructed that in advance of turning off the car or truck, a driver really should very first make sure all of the extras (wipers, radio, heater blower, rear window defroster, and so on.) are turned off. Was that genuine again then? If so, is it correct now? — David

RAY: It is not true now, David. On present day cars and trucks, all of the battery’s electrical power is routinely directed to the starter motor when you switch the vital to the crank placement. Anything at all else that attracts electrical power is immediately shut off whilst the auto is cranking. 

   You can exhibit this for yourself, David. Upcoming time you go out to begin your car, before you begin it, flip the important to the “run” placement (right ahead of “crank”). Then transform on your windshield wipers.
