What Is the Starter: Ford Parts BC

May 25,2022

A small, battery-powered motor is responsible for getting the engine of your vehicle going. It is known as the starter system. Also featuring a relay that transmits the energy, both pieces must be functioning properly to turn the automobile on.

If you hear a clicking sound as your turn the key inside the ignition or press the push-start button, the starter may be bad. This is the most common indicator. However, it can also die while in use. If this happens, you will be startled by a grinding noise before the vehicle kicks the bucket.

Another sign that the start needs to be replaced is if you try to turn on the car and only the dashboard lights up. Other issues can conclude smoke coming from short circuits or blown fuses, an oil leak, or no response from the motor after performing a jumpstart.

To make sure that the culprit is the starter, you should first check the battery and its cables. Next, gently tap the starter a few times like you would an old TV. If neither of those things works, put the transmission in neutral and try to turn the engine on. Lastly, make sure that you have fuel in the tank.
