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 Engine Starter Issues – FAQ
Understanding the finer nuances of car starter problems and replacement is not for everyone. Nevertheless, here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get when your car or truck won’t turn over yet still has power.

What Does a Bad Starter Sound Like?
Generally, a broken starter will make a variety of sounds. These often range from obvious loud clicking noises to a high-pitched screech, or unwelcome grinding noises to irregular whirring. Even when the battery is fully powered, you might still turn the key and hear no noises at all. This is normally because of the multiple components of the starter system.
How to Tell if Your Nissan Vehicle Starter is Going Bad?
When checking to see if a Nissan car starter is needs to be replaced, every mechanic, factory-trained or not, should first begin by testing the battery. Generally speaking, batteries need to be replaced far more often than your vehicle engine starter. This is easily done with a battery multimeter or a battery load tester. If it’s working properly, it’s still possible that the issue is relay fuse, theft immobilizer, neutral safety switch, battery connections, or computer. As always, your go-to source is going to be your area dealer service center. Short of removing and testing the starter, a diagnostic typically involves a process of elimination.
