Car Will Not Start But The Lights Come On?

Your Car Engine Will Not Turn Over But Has Power?

When handling vehicle starter challenges, it generally takes a full engine diagnostic. From ignition to battery to starter, there are numerous components in an ignition system, so finding the correct cause of failure is crucial.

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.” *

Car Engine Starter Problems – FAQ

Comprehending all the finer nuances about vehicle starter issues and replacement is not for everyone. Nevertheless, here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get when your vehicle is not turning over yet the battery is good.

What is the Cost For a Car Starter Repair?

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

What Does a Broken Car Starter Sound Like?

Generally, a bad starter will make a variety of sounds. These can range from obvious loud clacking sounds to a high-pitch screech, or unwelcome grinding noises to intermittent whirring. Even when the battery is good, one might turn the key in the ignition and still hear nothing at all. This is normally because of the multiple components that make up the car starter system.

How to Tell if Your Volkswagen Car Starter is Bad?

When checking to see if a Volkswagen vehicle starter is broken, every mechanic, factory-trained or not, should begin by testing the battery. Generally speaking, batteries need to be changed out far more often than your Volkswagen starter. This is easily done with a battery multimeter or a battery load 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 go-to source is your Milwaukee WI dealer service center. Short of removing and testing the faulty starter, a diagnostic typically includes a process of elimination.
