The starting and charging systems are two components of your vehicle that work together to start the engine and provide power to the electrical systems.
A car starter is a powerful electric motor that cranks your engine in order to start your car. It uses the electrical energy of the battery in order to turn the engine over to get it to start, which in turn gets your car moving. In other words, without a properly functioning starter, you’re going nowhere.
Here are some signs that show that the starter has failed:
- A broken starter will make a clicking sound when you turn the key in the ignition
- The car won't start, but the dash lights will be on.
- Jump starting your vehicle does not turn over the engine at all.
