Your Car or Truck Will Not Turn Over But Battery Still Good?
When handling car or truck starter issues, it typically takes a full engine diagnosis. From battery to ignition to starter, there are numerous components in the ignition system, so finding the correct cause of failure 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 Engine Starter Problems – Frequently Asked Questions
Understanding the finer nuances of vehicle starter repair and issues is not for all. Nevertheless, here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get when a Nissan won’t turn over but has power.
How Much Does It Cost For a Car Starter Repair?
As car starter systems often vary from engine to engine, there is no set price for every brand or service center. When do you call us, be sure to have the vehicle make, model, year, and trim level handy. Even then, it will need a diagnostic to provide an estimate.
What Noise Does a Faulty Car Starter Make?
Generally, a broken car starter will make a variety of noises. These often range from obvious loud clacking sounds to a high-pitched screech, or unwelcome grinding noises to intermittent whirring. Even when the battery is good, you may still turn the key and still hear no sound at all. This is often because of the myriad components of an engine starter system.
How to Tell if Your Nissan Starter is Bad?
When checking to see if your Nissan vehicle starter is bad, every auto mechanic, factory-certified or not, should first begin by testing the battery. Generally speaking, batteries need to be replaced far more often than your car’s starter needs to be replaced. This is easily done with a load tester or battery multimeter. If it’s working, it’s still always possible that it’s computer, neutral safety switch, battery connections, relay fuse, or theft immobilizer. As always, your best source is your Austin dealer service center. Short of actually removing the faulty starter, a diagnosis most often incorporates a process of elimination.
