Your Vehicle Not Turning Over But Has Power?

When it comes to car starter issues, it usually requires a full diagnosis. From starter to battery to ignition, there are multiple components of the ignition system, so finding the correct issue is crucial.

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.” *

Acura Starter Problems – FAQ

Comprehending the finer points about car starter issues and repair is not for all. Nevertheless, here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get when your car will not turn over but the battery is good.

What’s the Price For a Car Starter Replacement?

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

What Does a Bad Starter Sound Like?

A broken car starter will make a variety of noises. These can range from unmistakably loud clacking sounds to high-pitch screeching, or unpleasant grinding noises to intermittent whirring. Even when the battery is good, you might turn the key and hear nothing at all. This is often because of the various components of a car starter system.

How to Tell if Your Acura Starter is Bad?

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