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.” *

Vehicle Engine Starter Issues – Frequently Asked Questions
Understanding all the finer nuances about car starter problems and repair is not for everyone. Nevertheless, here are some of the frequently asked questions we get when a Nissan engine won’t turn over but still has power.

What Does a Bad Starter Sound Like?
Generally, a bad starter can make a variety of noises. These often range from obvious loud clicking noises to high-pitched screeching, or unpleasant grinding noises to irregular whirring. Even when the battery is fully powered, you might turn the key and hear no sound at all. This is often because of the various components that make up a car starter system.
How to Tell if Your Nissan Starter is Going Bad?
When checking to see if the Nissan car starter is bad, every mechanic, factory-trained or not, should always begin with a battery test. Generally speaking, batteries need to be changed out far more often than your car engine starter. This is easily done with a multimeter or a battery load tester. If it’s working properly, it’s still always possible that the issue is relay fuse, theft immobilizer, neutral safety switch, battery connections, or computer. As always, your go-to source is going to be your local Nissan service center. Short of removing and testing the faulty starter, a diagnosis most often incorporates a process of elimination.
