Car Will Not Turn Over But Battery Still Good?

When it comes to vehicle starter issues, it usually requires a standard engine diagnosis. From starter to ignition to battery, there are multiple components of an ignition system, so finding the correct cause of failure is critical.

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.” *

BMW Starter Problems – Frequently Asked Questions

Understanding all the specific nuances of car starter issues and replacement is not for all. Nevertheless, here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get when a vehicle won’t start but your lights still function just fine.

How Much to Repair a Car Starter?

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

What Noise Does a Faulty Car Starter Make?

Unfortunately, a bad car starter can make a variety of sounds. These often range from overly loud clicking sounds to high-pitched screeching, or unwelcome grinding noises to intermittent whirring. Even when the battery is good, you may turn the key in the ignition and hear warning sounds at all. This is because of the myriad components that make up the car starter system.

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

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

Had a small crack in my windshield and it was taken care of perfectly. Randy was awesome; he quickly got me a loaner car, texted when my car was fixed and had it waiting for me when I came back to pick it up. Fabulous and friendly service!
