Car Not Turning Over But Battery Still Good?

When it comes to car or truck starter issues, it usually takes a standard engine diagnostic. From starter to ignition to battery, there are multiple components to the ignition system, so finding the correct issue is absolutely 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.” *

Toyota Starter Problems – Frequently Asked Questions

Understanding all the specific nuances about car starter problems and repair is not for everyone. Nevertheless, here are some of the frequently asked questions we get when a Toyota won’t start but the lights still function just fine.

What’s the Cost to Repair My Car Starter?

As starter systems typically vary from brand to brand, there is no set price for every service center or brand. When you call us, however, please be sure to have your make, model, year, and trim level available. Even so, it will need a diagnostic to provide a full quote.

What is the Noise of a Faulty Car Starter?

Typically, a bad car starter can make a variety of noises. These can range from unmistakably loud clicking noises to high-pitched screeching, or unpleasant grinding noises to intermittent whirring. Even when the battery is fully powered, you might still turn the key in the ignition and still hear warning noises at all. This is normally because of the multiple components that make up an engine starter system.

How to Tell if Your Toyota Car Starter is Bad?

When checking to see if the Toyota car starter is needs repair, every auto mechanic, factory-trained or not, should always begin with a battery test. Typically speaking, batteries need to be replaced far more often than your car engine starter needs replacement. This is easily done with a battery multimeter or a battery load tester. If it’s working properly, it’s still possible that it’s computer, neutral safety switch, battery connections, relay fuse, or theft immobilizer. As always, your go-to source is going to be your area dealership service center. Short of removing and testing the starter, a diagnosis generally incorporates a process of elimination.
