Car Will Not Turn Over But Has Power?
When dealing with car or truck starter challenges, it typically requires an engine diagnosis. From battery to ignition to starter, there are multiple components to the ignition system, so finding the correct issue is of the utmost importance.
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 Starter Problems – FAQ
Understanding the specific points about vehicle starter problems and repair is not for all. Nevertheless, here are some of the frequently asked questions we get when your car or truck won’t turn over but still has power.
What is the Cost to Replace My Car Starter?
As starter systems vary from engine to engine, there is no set price for every brand or service center. When do you call, be sure to have the make, model, year, and trim level on hand. Even so, it will take a diagnostic to provide a cost estimate.
What is the Noise of a Broken Car Starter?
Generally, a faulty car starter will make a variety of noises. These often range from obvious loud clacking noises to high-pitched screeching, or unwelcome grinding noises to intermittent whirring. Even when the battery is good, you might still turn the key in the ignition and hear no noises at all. This is because of the multiple components of the car starter system.
How to Tell if Your Honda Starter is Going Bad?
When testing to see if the Honda car starter is bad, every mechanic, factory-trained or not, should always begin by testing the battery. Typically speaking, batteries need to be changed out far more often than your car’s starter needs to be repaired. This is easily done with a load tester or battery tester. If it’s working, it’s still always possible that the problem is computer, neutral safety switch, battery connections, relay fuse, or theft immobilizer. As always, your best source is going to be your local dealership service center. Short of actually removing and testing the faulty starter, a diagnosis typically involves a process of elimination.
