The starting system consists of the following components:
- Battery
- Ignition Switch
- Starter Motor Assembly
- EWS (if equipped)
- Starter Safety Switch
- Cables and Wiring Harness

Ignition Switch
The ignition Switch provides a request to the starting system to engage the starter motor. This request is handled differently depending on the year of the vehicle and particular systems the vehicle is tiffed with.

In non EWS systems the ignition switch provided power directly to the starter solenoid or a starter relay. Beginning with EWS I the start request (KL5O) is passed to an Immobilizer control module or an EWS module (EWS II/III).

On vehicles with one touch starting the KL5O signal is passed to the DME.
