Your Kia Not Starting But The Lights Go On?

If your vehicle won’t start but the lights go on, then perhaps it’s time to get a vehicle starter replacement. If you’re in the Lubbock area, then call today for help.

Your Car Won’t Turn Over But Battery Still Good?

When dealing with Kia starter issues, it generally requires an engine diagnosis. From battery to starter to ignition, there are multiple components of an ignition system, so finding the correct issue is crucial.

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.” *

Car Engine Starter Problems – Frequently Asked Questions

Understanding all the finer nuances about vehicle starter issues and replacement is not for all. Nevertheless, here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get when your car won’t start but your lights come on.

What’s the Price to Replace a Car Starter?

As vehicle starter systems vary from brand to brand, there is no price we can quote for every model, and certainly not for every service center. When you call, be sure to have the make, model, year, and trim level available. Even so, it will take a diagnostic to provide a cost estimate.

How Does a Broken Car Starter Sound?

Generally, a faulty car starter can make a variety of sounds. These often range from overly loud clicking sounds to high-pitch screeching, or an unwelcome grinding noise to intermittent whirring. Even when the battery is fully powered, one may still turn the key in the ignition and hear warning sounds at all. This is typically because of the various components of a engine starter system.

How to Tell if Your Kia Car Starter is Going Bad?

When testing to see if a Kia car starter is needs replacement, every auto mechanic, factory-trained or not, should always begin by determining if the battery is dead. Typically speaking, batteries need to be changed out far more often than your Kia engine starter. This is easy with a battery multimeter or a battery load tester. If it’s working, it’s still always possible that the problem is relay fuse, theft immobilizer, neutral safety switch, battery connections, or computer. As always, your go-to source is your Lubbock Kia service center. Short of removing and testing the starter, a diagnostic generally incorporates a process of elimination.
