Vehicle Not Turning Over But Battery Still Good?

When it comes to car starter challenges, it generally requires a standard engine diagnostic. From battery to starter to ignition, there are multiple components of the ignition system, so finding the correct issue is of the utmost importance.

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 Problems – Frequently Asked Questions

Understanding all the finer nuances about vehicle starter replacement and problems is not for all. Nevertheless, here are some of the frequently asked questions we get when your Volkswagen won’t start but your lights function just fine.

How Much to Repair a Car Starter?

As vehicle starter systems typically vary from engine to engine, there is no price that we can quote for every model, and especially not for every service center. When you call us, be sure to have your vehicle make, model, year, and trim level handy. Even then, it will need a diagnostic to provide an estimate.

How Does a Broken Car Starter Sound?

A faulty car starter can and will make a variety of sounds. These often range from unmistakably loud clicking sounds to a high-pitch screech, or an unpleasant grinding noise to intermittent whirring. Even when the battery is good, one may turn the key and hear no noises at all. This is because of the miriad components that make up the starter system.

How to Tell if Your Volkswagen Car Starter is Bad?

When testing to see if your Volkswagen vehicle starter is broken, every auto mechanic, factory-trained or not, should begin by testing the battery. Typically speaking, batteries need to be replaced far more often than your vehicle starter needs to be repaired. This is easily done with a battery load tester or multimeter. If it’s working, it’s still always possible that the problem is neutral safety switch, theft immobilizer, relay fuse, battery connections, or computer. As always, your go-to source is going to be your local dealership service center. Short of actually removing the starter, a diagnosis typically incorporates a process of elimination.
