What is a Car 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.” *

Honda Starter Issues – FAQ
Understanding all the specific points of vehicle starter repairs and issues is not for everyone. Nevertheless, here are some of the frequently asked questions we get when a vehicle engine won’t start but your lights come on.
What is the Cost to Replace My Car Starter?
As starter systems vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, there is no price we can quote for every model, and especially not for every service center. When you call us, please be sure to have your vehicle year, make, model, and trim level on hand. Even so, it will need a diagnostic to provide a cost estimate.
What Does a Faulty Starter Sound Like?
A broken starter will make a variety of sounds. These can range from obvious loud clacking noises to high-pitched screeching, or unpleasant grinding noises to irregular whirring. Even when the battery is fully powered, one might turn the key and still hear no noises at all. This is normally because of the myriad components of the car starter system.
How to Tell if Your Honda Car Starter is Bad?
When testing to see if the Honda starter is needs replacement, every auto mechanic, factory-trained or not, should first begin by determining if the battery is full. Typically speaking, batteries need to be changed out far more often than your car’s engine starter. This is easy with a battery tester or a battery load tester. If it’s working, it’s still possible that the problem is relay fuse, theft immobilizer, neutral safety switch, battery connections, or computer. As always, your best source is your Houston dealer service center. Short of actually removing the broken starter, a diagnosis generally includes a process of elimination.
