Car or Truck Engine Not Turning Over But Battery Good?

When it comes to car starter issues, it typically requires an engine diagnosis. From battery to ignition to starter, there are numerous components to an ignition system, so finding the correct cause of failure is essential.

What is a Car or Truck Engine 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.” *

Car Starter Problems – Frequently Asked Questions

Understanding the finer nuances about car starter problems and replacement is not for all. Nevertheless, here are some of the frequently asked questions we get when your car won’t start but the lights go on.

How Much For a Car Starter Replacement?

As car starter systems typically vary from model to model, there is no price which we can quote for each model, and especially not for every service center. When you call, however, please be sure to have the year, make, model, and trim level handy. Even then, it will need a diagnostic to provide a cost estimate.

What Does a Broken Starter Sound Like?

Generally, a bad starter can and will make a variety of noises. These can range from unmistakably loud clicking sounds to a high-pitched screech, or unpleasant grinding noises to intermittent whirring. Even when the battery is fully powered, you might still turn the key and hear nothing at all. This is because of the various components of the car starter system.

How to Tell if Your BMW Car Starter is Going Bad?

When testing to see if the BMW car starter is bad, every mechanic, factory-certified or not, should always begin by determining if the battery is strong. Generally speaking, batteries need to be replaced far more often than your vehicle’s starter. This is easily done with a load tester or battery tester. If it’s working, it’s still possible that it’s relay fuse, theft immobilizer, neutral safety switch, battery connections, or computer. As always, your best source is your area dealer service center. Short of removing and testing the broken starter, a diagnosis most often involves a process of elimination.
