Car Not Turning Over But Battery Still Good?

When it comes to car or truck starter problems, it typically takes an engine diagnostic. From starter to ignition to battery, there are multiple components to the ignition system, so finding the correct cause of failure is critical.

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 – Frequently Asked Questions

Understanding all the specific points of vehicle starter repairs and issues is not for everyone. Nevertheless, here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get when your vehicle engine will not turn over yet the battery is still good.

How Much Does It Cost For a Car Starter Replacement?

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

How Does a Faulty Car Starter Sound?

Typically, a bad car starter can make a variety of sounds. 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 may still turn the key in the ignition and hear no sound at all. This is normally because of the myriad components that make up the engine starter system.

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

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