How does an electric starter motor work?

Answer

An electric starter motor works by having current applied to the solenoid which engages a lever that in turn pushes out the drive pinion on the starter driveshaft. The pinion is then meshed with the starter ring gear on the engine's flywheel. The solenoid also closes high current contacts for the starter motor which then begins to turn.
