Vehicle Will Not Turn Over But Battery Still Good?

When it comes to vehicle starter issues, it generally requires an engine diagnostic. From ignition to starter to battery, there are numerous components of the ignition system, so finding the right issue is absolutely critical.

What is a Car 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 or Truck Engine Starter Issues – Frequently Asked Questions

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

What is the Price to Repair a Car Starter?

As vehicle starter systems often vary from engine to engine, there is no price we can quote for every model, and especially not every service center. When you call us, however, be sure to have the vehicle make, model, year, and trim level available. Even then, it will require a diagnostic to provide an estimate.

What Sound Does a Broken Starter Make?

Generally, a bad starter will make a variety of sounds. These often range from unmistakably loud clicking sounds to a high-pitch screech, or unpleasant grinding noises to irregular whirring. Even when the battery is strong, one may turn the key and hear no noises at all. This is typically because of the multiple components that make up a engine starter system.

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

When checking to see if a Acura starter is needs replacement, every mechanic, factory-certified or not, should first begin by determining if the battery is good. Typically speaking, batteries need to be replaced far more often than your vehicle’s engine starter. This is easy with a multimeter or a battery load tester. If it’s working, it’s still always possible that it’s relay fuse, theft immobilizer, neutral safety switch, battery connections, or computer. As always, your best source is your local dealer service center. Short of actually removing and testing the faulty starter, a diagnosis generally incorporates a process of elimination.
