At Mt Pritchard Auto Electrical, many of our clients have issues with their car’s not starting. There can be many reasons that contribute to the problem, including:
Dead Battery – One of the most common reasons your car won’t start is due to a dead battery. If your car has not shown any previous signs or issues with the engine, it will likely be due to a dead battery. A car battery can die for many reasons, including lights and other accessories being left on. When this happens, the power to get the car running will not exist, and the car will not start when the key is turned. This can be solved with a simple jumpstart but can also be professionally looked at by our team of experts. You may require a replacement battery to restore its functionality in some cases.
Failing Starter – Strange noises from your vehicle can tell you a lot about the problems occurring under the hood. For example, if you turn the key and only hear a click or a series of clicks but the engine does not start, this could indicate an issue with the starter motor. In this case, the starter motor is not engaging with the flywheel, making it difficult for your vehicle to become a moving system. Hence, your car may need a starter replacement. Our Mt Pritchard Auto Electrical team can replace your failing starter with a more enhanced component.
Failing Alternator – Your alternator is designed to generate electricity while driving and store excess electricity to power the battery the next time you need to drive. Suppose you find that your car is starting with great difficulty or that you constantly require a jumpstart. In that case, this may indicate that your alternator is not restoring any battery power and needs replacing. Our team will easily replace or repair your alternator for superior performance.
Faulty Ignition – When turning the key in the ignition, you create an electrical pathway that starts your car. However, if this pathway is not being completed, it could be due to an ignition switch issue. Hence, your car will not remove and will remain stationary. Our team will assess your ignition system and clear the electrical pathway to ensure it all connects seamlessly.
Fuel Delivery Issue – A normal car requires air and gas to run smoothly. However, this becomes difficult when the fuel filter is clogged and won’t allow fuel to pass through in high enough quantities and help the engine run. Additionally, when the fuel pump fails, there is no way for the car to pump gas to the engine. Therefore, servicing will be required.
