Cars are typically fitted with multiple types of lights.These include headlights, which are used to illuminate the way ahead and make the car visible to other users, so that the vehicle can be used at night; in some jurisdictions, daytime running lights; red brake lights to indicate when the brakes are applied; amber turn signal lights to indicate the turn intentions of the driver; white-coloured reverse lights to illuminate the area behind the car (and indicate that the driver will be or is reversing); and on some vehicles, additional lights (e.g., side marker lights) to increase the visibility of the car. Interior lights on the ceiling of the car are usually fitted for the driver and passengers.
Some vehicles also have a trunk light and, more rarely, an engine compartment light.Źródło: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automotive_lighting
The necessary high voltage, typically 10,000 volts, is supplied by an induction coil or transformer.
This is especially as problem since the amount of energy needed to ignite a more dense fuel mixture is higher.
The result was often a high rpm misfire. Capacitor discharge ignition was developed.
For years the solution was to park the car in heated areas.In some parts of the world the oil was actually drained and heated over night and returned to the engine for cold starts. In the early 1950s the gasoline Gasifier unit was developed, where, on cold weather starts, raw gasoline was diverted to the unit where part of the fuel was burned causing the other part to become a hot vapor sent directly to the intake valve manifold.
This unit was quite popular until electric engine block heaters became standard on gasoline engines sold in cold climates.20Źródło: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internal_combustion_engine.
