Your Car or Truck Won’t Turn Over But Battery Good?

When handling vehicle starter problems, it typically requires a standard engine diagnostic. From starter to ignition to battery, there are numerous components to the ignition system, so finding the right cause of failure is absolutely essential.

What is a Car 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 points of car starter problems and replacement is not for everyone. Nevertheless, here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get when your car or truck engine won’t start but the lights come on.

What’s the Cost to Replace a Car Starter?

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

How Does a Broken Car Starter Sound?

Typically, a faulty car starter can make a variety of noises. These often range from overly loud clacking sounds to a high-pitch screech, or an unpleasant grinding noise to irregular whirring. Even when the battery is strong, one may still turn the key and still hear no sound at all. This is normally because of the multiple components of a starter system.

How to Tell if Your Lexus Starter is Bad?

When checking to see if your Lexus starter is needs to be replaced, every auto mechanic, factory-certified or not, should begin by testing the battery. Generally speaking, batteries need to be changed out far more often than your car’s starter needs repair. This is easy with a load tester or multimeter. If it’s properly working, it’s still always possible that the problem is relay fuse, theft immobilizer, neutral safety switch, battery connections, or computer. As always, your go-to source is going to be your local dealer service center. Short of removing and testing the starter, a diagnosis generally involves a process of elimination.
