The GM car or truck you love -- it should start and run like the day you drove it home from the dealership. Wouldn't you agree? Your factory ignition makes sure it does. How ignitions work begins with the turn of a key and the trigger of an ignition switch. Your favorite ride then gets going. What happens under the hood, however, is a bit more complicated. Put simply, though, your starter motor, solenoid, ignition coil, and battery work together. They send a small electrical charge to your engine cylinder head, where your spark plugs are. The plugs capture the current and use it to ignite the mix of gas and air in your engine. That combustion releases power -- the power all engines run on. Your vehicle starts and, with help from its alternator, it keeps running as best it can. If you have problems starting, though, it can indicate that your ignition is going bad, if it hasn't failed already. To figure out what's up, plug in a code reader, do a thorough inspection, and look for the signs your ignition is going out.
