Car or Truck Engine Not Turning Over But Battery Good?

When dealing with MINI starter issues, it typically takes an engine diagnostic. From starter to battery to ignition, there are numerous components of the ignition system, so finding the right cause of failure is essential.

What is a Car or Truck 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.” *

Vehicle Engine Starter Issues – Frequently Asked Questions

Comprehending all 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 a car or truck will not turn over yet has power.

What is the Cost to Replace My Car Starter?

As car starter systems often vary from brand to brand, there is no price which we can quote for each model, and especially not every service center. When do you call, however, please be sure to have your vehicle make, model, year, and trim level on hand. Even so, it will take a diagnostic to provide a cost estimate.

What Does a Broken Car Starter Sound Like?

A broken starter can make a variety of sounds. These can range from obvious loud clacking noises to a high-pitch screech, or an unpleasant grinding noise to intermittent whirring. Even when the battery is good, you may turn the key in the ignition and still hear nothing at all. This is normally because of the multiple components of the engine starter system.

How to Tell if Your MINI Vehicle Starter is Going Bad?

When testing to see if the MINI vehicle starter is broken, every auto mechanic, factory-certified or not, should first begin with a battery test. Typically speaking, batteries need to be replaced far more often than your vehicle’s engine starter needs replacement. This is easy with a 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 your local MINI service center. Short of actually removing the starter, a diagnosis typically includes a process of elimination.
