A vehicle’s electrical system is incredibly complicated and has many intricate components. Hence, there are many issues that can occur over the car’s lifetime. At Mt Pritchard Auto Electrical, we can fix and repair a range of electrical parts, including your car battery, alternator, and starter motor. For example, if you struggle to start your engine, it may not always mean a flat battery. Instead, it is worth looking at your starter motor to ensure it is in perfect condition. Our team of professionals can assess your vehicle and diagnose any problems with the starter motor.
The Functions Of A Car Battery
As you turn the ignition key in your car, you are also turning on the starter. This component is connected to the engine, which then causes it to start running. When your starter isn’t working properly, the engine is affected. This means it may run with more difficulty or not at all. There are many reasons for starter problems, including electrical or mechanical failure or outright breakage from wear and tear.
Possible signs that suggest you may have a faulty starter motor include:
- Turning the ignition key into the start position, but nothing happens
- If all you hear is a click when you start your car
- If the starter cranks very slowly
If you experience any of these problems, get in touch with our experts at Mt Pritchard Auto Electrical. Our team will find the best way to solve the issue and ensure your car is fully functional.
Starter Motor Replacement
A faulty starter will prevent you from safely starting your car. Therefore, if you are experiencing any problems, our team of automotive experts can determine whether a replacement is required. If we think that your car needs a starter motor replacement, then we will perform the following:
