Your Car or Truck Will Not Turn Over But Still Has Power?

When handling car or truck starter issues, it typically takes an engine diagnostic. From battery to starter to ignition, there are multiple components in the ignition system, so finding the right cause of failure is of the utmost importance.

What is a Car or Truck Starter?

“A car starter is a powerful electric motor that cranks your engine in order to start your car. The starting system consists of the motor itself, and the attached solenoid. The solenoid is what takes battery power and delivers it to the starter motor. It also pushes the starter gear forward, allowing it to mesh with the gear teeth of the engine’s flywheel. A high current is needed to start your car, so your battery has to have enough “juice” to enable the car starting system to work properly. Most of the time, when a car won’t start and the battery is fully charged, the starter motor is to blame. Starters do wear out.” *

Vehicle Engine Starter Issues – FAQ

Understanding the specific points about car starter repair and problems is not for everyone. Nevertheless, here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get when a vehicle engine won’t start but your lights come on just fine.

What is the Cost For a Car Starter Repair?

As starter systems often vary from brand to brand, there is no set price for every service center or brand. When you call us, please be sure to have the year, make, model, and trim level on hand. Even then, it will need a diagnostic to provide a cost estimate.

What is the Sound of a Broken Starter?

A bad starter will make a variety of sounds. These can range from obvious loud clicking sounds to high-pitched screeching, or an unwelcome grinding noise to intermittent whirring. Even when the battery is strong, one might still turn the key and still hear no noises at all. This is often because of the various components that make up a starter system.

How to Tell if Your BMW Vehicle Starter is Bad?

When checking to see if the BMW starter is bad, every auto mechanic, factory-trained or not, should always begin by determining if the battery is good. Typically speaking, batteries need replacement far more often than your vehicle starter needs replacement. This is easily done with a multimeter or a battery load tester. If it’s working properly, it’s still always possible that the issue is neutral safety switch, theft immobilizer, relay fuse, battery connections, or computer. As always, your best source is your Houston, TX dealership service center. Short of removing and testing the faulty starter, a diagnostic generally incorporates a process of elimination.

I've dealt with many dealerships but their service department is top notched. I always leave the impression that they are there to impress me with their quality of customer care and not there to collect a check.
